Holiday Biscotti

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Beat butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; beat until combined. Beat in the 3 eggs, vanilla, and almond extract until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour; the anise and fennel seeds; and the cranberries, pistachios, and apricots with a wooden spoon. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a 12-inch-long log 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Place logs at least 3 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten each log slightly to 3/4-inch thickness. Combine egg and 1 tablespoon water. Brush over logs.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until light brown. Cool logs on cookie sheet 1 hour or till completely cool.
  4. When logs are cool, preheat oven to 325 dgrees F. Transfer logs to a cutting board. Cut each log diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Lay slices down on cookie sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Turn slices over, and bake 5 minutes more or until dry and crisp. Remove and cool on wire racks. Makes about 48.
