Southern Style Biscotti with Butter Olive Oil Recipe
-3 cups all-purpose flour
-1 1/2 cups instant grits
-1 tablespoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon kosher salt
-1 1/2 cups sugar
18 tbs Sonoma Farm Butter Infused Olive Oil http://www.sonomafarm.com/product/butter-infused-extra-virgin-olive-oil-250ml8-5oz/
-1 tablespoon loosely packed orange zest
-4 large eggs
-1 1/2 cups sweetened dried cranberries
1. Preheat oven to 325°. Stir together first 4 ingredients. Beat sugar, butter olive oil, and zest at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture and cranberries, beating just until blended.
2. Divide dough into 3 equal portions; shape each into a 12 1/2- x 9-inch slightly flattened log, using lightly floured hands. Place about 2 inches apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 325° for 30 to 35 minutes or until light brown. Transfer to wire racks; cool 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300°.
3. Cut each log into 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick slices using a serrated knife. Place on 3 parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
4. Bake at 300° for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets 10 minutes; transfer cookies, on parchment paper, to wire racks, and cool.
