A few years ago (2014 to be exact) I made you guys these Cranberry Orange Scones, and to this day they are still popular, so I decided we should expand our cranberry orange horizons.
I made us this Cranberry Orange Biscotti - WITH FRESH CRANBERRIES!
Every year in November I get really excited about all things Thanksgiving (like Sourdough Stuffing with Cranberries and Pecans) and I buy WAYYYYY too many bags of fresh cranberries.
To be fair I always have things in mind (like Cranberry Pecan Banana Bread; YES.), and while I do check some things off my must-make list, we always get to the end of the holiday season with 3 extra bags of fresh cranberries that I have no idea what to do with.
Cue adding fresh cranberries to all the things.
I adapted this Cranberry Orange Biscotti from a recipe that actually calls for dried cranberries. I wasn’t sure if the fresh cranberries would cause crazy amounts of moisture and ruin the dough, or mess with the rise … I was a little worried about the final product BUT!
It really turned out.
Chopping the cranberries is important and getting the right chop is crucial. A food processor makes quick work of things, but you have to be careful because if the cranberries are TOO chopped then you have a soupy biscotti mess.
I opted for just coarsely chopping with a kitchen knife. Calling that a success.
Cranberry Orange Biscotti is perfect with coffee or tea. It’s awesome for using up leftover cranberries. Pretty for tea time. Makes great gifts!
