While dried cranberries and orange peel add a bit of tartness to crisp cookies, a chocolate glaze provides a sweet touch.
Updated Nov 19, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds

Glaze

  • 8 oz white chocolate baking bar, chopped
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 1 large or 2 small cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 4-quart bowl, beat sugar, brown sugar and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add 2 teaspoons orange peel and the eggs; beat well. Stir in flour and baking powder; mix well. Stir in cranberries and almonds.
  • 3
    Shape dough into 3 rolls, each about 7 inches long. Place rolls at least 3 inches apart on cookie sheet; flatten each to form 3/4-inch-thick rectangle, about 3 inches wide and 7 inches long.
  • 4
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until rectangles are light golden brown and centers are firm to the touch. Place rectangles on cooling racks; cool 5 minutes.
  • 5
    Wipe cookie sheet clean. With serrated knife, cut each rectangle into 1/2-inch slices; place, cut side up, on cookie sheet.
  • 6
    Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until top surface is slightly dry. Turn cookies over; bake 6 to 8 minutes longer or until top surface is slightly dry. Remove cookies from cookie sheets; cool completely on cooling racks.
  • 7
    Melt white chocolate in 2-quart heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat; dip 1 long side of each of 24 cookies into chocolate. Place on waxed paper until chocolate is set. In another 2-quart heavy saucepan, melt dark chocolate over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat; dip 1 long side of remaining 24 cookies into chocolate. Place on waxed paper until chocolate is set. Store tightly covered.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    When grating orange peel, be sure to grate only the orange part of the skin. A grater with tiny holes works especially well. Avoid the white part, or pith, which is bitter.
  • tip 2
    Biscotti (bee-SKAWT-tee) are perfect for dunking, so dunk them in coffee, tea, hot chocolate or milk.
