    These biscotti are fragrant and have a beautiful complex flavour. For an extra treat, half dip them in chocolate.

    Serves: 20 

    • 125g butter
    • 3/4 cup (190g) white sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tablespoon orange zest
    • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur
    • 2 1/4 cups (280g) plain flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in egg. Stir in the orange zest and orange liqueur. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, stir into the creamed mixture, then stir in the almonds and dried cranberries.
    3. On a lightly floured surface, divide the dough in half. Roll each half into a log about 4cm wide and 25cm long. Set the rolls lengthwise on a baking tray at least 8cm apart and flatten slightly.
    4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm to the touch and slightly brown on the top.
    5. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes then slice each log crosswise, at a diagonal, into 1cm wide slices. Lay them cut side down on the baking tray and return to the oven for ten minutes, turn them over and bake for 10 more minutes. Cool on wire racks, store in an airtight container. These keep for over a month.
