White Chocolate Cranberry Biscotti (GF option)

Coffee and Biscotti is like the adult version of milk and cookies. (Not that I think I’m too old for milk and cookies because that is still happening in this house!)

This was the first time I had ever attempted biscotti. These White Chocolate Cranberry Biscotti were super easy and quick to make! Yeah, if you can bake cookies then you can make biscotti–no problem!

If you have had store bought biscotti then you probably think of it as being rock hard and impossible to eat unless it has been dipped in coffee. These homemade biscotti are not rock hard and can be eaten alone… although I still highly recommend dunking them in coffee.

I used my homemade GF flour mixture:

Mix all together and store in an air tight container. This recipe will make 4 cups of flour. The biscotti only needs 3 cups of flour so you will have 1 cup flour left over.
