Cardamom Biscotti with Cranberries & White Chocolate -

What a glorious week! I thought Taco Week was spectacular, now over on Food Fanatic we are giving you a whole week devoted to cookies! Pretty amazing, right? Cookies are one of my favorite things to make because cookie dough comes together so quickly which means I’m eating warm cookies, fresh from the oven in no time. Cookies also rock because they almost always require only one bowl and any time I can get out of doing more dishes is alright by me.

Ease of time and little mess are two pluses but quite possibly the most wonderful thing about cookies is their versatility. Sure you can whip up a classic batch of chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies or oatmeal raisin. But you can stir just about anything you’re imagination conjures up into cookie dough and come away with deliciousness. This week I decided to revisit a cookie that I haven’t made in years. Biscotti.

The last time I made these particular cookies it was the heart of summer so I decided to make Lemon Biscotti. Lemon is probably my all-time favorite summer flavor that just feels so bright and wonderful to me in those hot summer months. Now we’ve come full circle and it’s mid-December so I knew I wanted to make a cookie that was unmistakably “winter flavored.” These Cardamom Biscotti are filled with tender, tart cranberries and plenty of white chocolate. These definitely fit the bill!

Cranberries are one of my favorite winter fruits. They sit firmly in the top three joined by pears and pomegranate. Here I’ve paired cranberries with biscotti that are brimming with the flavor of almond and spiced with fragrant cardamom. The smooth flavor of white chocolate chips blend so nicely with the tartness of the cranberries and spiciness of the cardamom. Twice baked these irresistible cookies become crisp, perfect for dipping and enjoying with your afternoon coffee or tea. I know you’ll love this Cardamom Biscotti Recipe as much as we did. Now, don’t forget to feast your eyes on all the other cookies for Food Fanatic’s Cookie Week and you’ll have no trouble at all filling your holiday cookie tray this year!
