Baking Biscottis

It’s been a christmas tradition at my house for the last couple years for me to bake macademia nut, white & milk chocolate, cranberry biscottis. And this year’s the same. If you dig far back enough, you’ll see these same cookies already featured on this blog. 🙂 This year, we didn’t have macadamia nuts though, so I substituted it with some hazelnuts instead. 🙂




  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ cup white chocolate
  • 1 cup milk chocolate
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
  • ¾ cup chopped macadamia nuts/hazelnuts


  1. Coarsely chop up white chocolate, milk chocolate, cranberries, and nuts.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, and beat well. Beat in vanilla.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add gradually to wet mixture. Mix in chocolates, cranberries, and nuts.
  4. Cut the dough in half, and make large rectangles about ¼ thick. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until the dough looks golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Cut the rectangles into slices, and place on cooking sheets again. Bake for another 15 minutes. Let cool.
