This Cranberry Almond Biscotti recipe incorporate dried cranberries and sugar substitute in a fresh version of these traditionally almond-flavored Italian Christmas cookies.

Biscotti (bih-SKAWT-tee), meaning “twice-baked” in Italian (“bis” meaning “twice” and “cotto” derived from “cooked”), have become the most popularized Italian cookie recipe beyond the country’s borders.

Making biscotti is deceptively simple. Dough is formed into loaves, baked until golden brown, sliced, and then baked again. It is ideal for dipping in coffee, espresso, tea, milk, or wine.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake time: 40 minutes
Makes about 30-32 cookies
