Day 268: Cranberry Orange Biscotti

This biscotti is a one-bowl cookie recipe, with no butter or oil! It's flavored with orange and cranberry but feel free to mix and match flavors as you wish.

With the holidays coming right up around the corner, I thought orange and cranberry are just perfect for the season.

Not to mention today is National Cookie Day. With this in mind, I decided to make my favorite cookie, biscotti!

Dried fruit is really nice in biscotti, if you use fresh fruit it can make your biscotti soggy, and no one likes that! The dough may be slightly sticky. Just flour up your hands and it will be okay. Also, the dough might be a bit crumbly at first, just stir in the egg really well with a spoon, spatula, or whisk, and add your orange juice.

You're sure to love this classic combination in biscotti form! It's the right balance of sweet and super simple to make. Happy biscotti baking!

|Level: 👩🏽‍🍳|Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes|Serves: 15|


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/3 cup orange juice

  • 2 tablespoons orange zest

  • 1/4 cup dried and chopped cranberries

  • 1 teaspoon water


  1. In a bowl whisk your flour, sugar, and baking powder together. Stir in one egg, orange juice, orange zest, and cranberries. Stir and knead to form a ball. In a small, separate bowl combine your extra egg and water, this will be your egg wash.

  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take your cookie dough and form it into a 12x4" rectangle. Brush your egg wash onto the biscotti rectangle. Bake for 30 minutes.

  3. Cool for five minutes and cut 1/2" wide pieces out of your biscotti block. Lay them on the parchment paper standing up and bake for another 20-30 minutes. You can tell if your cookies are done if the middle is not squishy, but crunchy instead.
