This week seems like it has just crawled by.  Every day seems to be going slower than the last one.  The reason for this is that tonight I am going on a holiday!  My bags are packed, and I am mentally soooo ready for a holiday…it has been almost a year since my last vacation!
Biscotti makes me think of time going by slowly (but in a good way).  Those mornings where you slowly read the paper or a good book while savoring a cup of coffee and a biscotti.  I don’t have many mornings like that when I am home, but when I am on holiday, I make sure to slow down and enjoy my morning routine.  It is my favorite part of being on vacation.

Apple Cider Biscotti
Apple Cider Biscotti
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 envelopes of apple cider mix
  • ½ cup oil (mazola or corn)
  • 2½ cups flour (all purpose)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ⅔ cup chopped whole almonds
  • ⅔ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ envelope apple cider mix
Apple Cider Glaze
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2-3 packages of apple cider mix (to taste)
  • milk
  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 F.
  2. Combine eggs, sugar, apple cider mix, and oil. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, almonds and cranberries. Gradually add to egg mixture until all ingredients combined. You can chill your dough to help it firm up (I did not).
  3. Form a 'log' that is approximately 1 inch thick, and as wide as you'd like your biscotti to be long on a parchment-lined baking sheet. *Note: the wider the 'log' the more difficult it is to slice later. You can form 2 logs on separate baking sheets if you prefer smaller biscotti. Sprinkle with additional cider powder, if desired. Bake for 30 minutes, until slightly golden and firm when touched with a fingertip. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Using a serrated knife, slice biscotti into 1-1.5 inch wide slices. Bake for 10 minutes, gently flip over and return to the oven for another 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before glazing.
Apple Cider Glaze
  1. Mix together icing sugar and cider mix. Add milk and beat with an electric mixer until you get the consistency you desire. Pour glaze into a ziplock bag, cut the corner, and drizzle over biscotti.
