Crispy biscotti, Italian for "twice-baked," pair perfectly with English Breakfast or Earl Grey tea. Test kitchen tip: Don't worry if they're a little soft when they come out of the oven—they harden as they cool. Store in an airtight container.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 whole eggs
1 egg white
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup natural cane sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped crystallized ginger
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine vanilla extract, whole eggs, egg white, and honey in a medium bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and blend thoroughly. Add ginger and cranberries; stir until well blended and cranberries and ginger are distributed.
Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a 12-inch-long flattened log approximately 1/2-inch thick. Place logs on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 325°. On a cutting board, slice each log diagonally into 12 slices, each 1/2-inch thick. Place pieces cut-side up on baking sheet and bake for an additional 8 minutes; flip and cook on the other side for another 8 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
