Cherry Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Standard

This was my first attempt at making biscotti, and I’m not even a huge fan of it! My parents on the other hand, well they are biscotti lovers. I primarily made this recipe for  them. They were so yummy tasting and I was so proud of myself 🙂

Cherry Chocolate Chip Biscotti
(makes about 2.5 dozen)

3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp canola oil
2 eggs
2 egg whites
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cups dried cherries – chopped
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

Beat sugar and oil until blended.
Beat in eggs, egg whites, and extracts.
Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.
Gradually add to the wet mixture and mix well.
Mix in cherries and chocolate chips.
Divide dough in half.
With lightly floured hands, shape each half into a 12×3 inch rectangle.
Place each on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned.
Remove to wire racks and cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer to a cutting board and cut with a serrated knife into 3/4 inch slices.


Place cut side down on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes longer.


Flip the biscotti slices and bake for 5-7 minutes longer until firm.
Remove to wire racks to cool.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. Cherry and chocolate is my favourite combination. These look amazing. I’ve done loads of chocolate and nut combinations for biscotti and never thought about doing cherry. It’s like a light has been turned on in my head. Of COURSE chocolate and cherry biscotti would be amazing! Thank you x
