Why sit down to a cup of coffee without a treat nearby? That’s why this Honey Orange Cranberry Biscotti recipe will come in handy. Sure, making your own biscotti is a little more work than the typical cookie, but the results are completely worth it. And these crisp cookies are perfect for dunking in your coffee, hot cocoa or tea.
Coffee and biscotti is a nice solo treat, but even better when shared with friends. So why not invite some friends over and make some freshly baked honey orange cranberry biscotti? The flavor combination is beyond tempting and the recipe makes enough that you can save and enjoy for later as well.
We used the Waxing Kara Orange Blossom honey for this recipe so that each biscotti is bursting with orange deliciousness. We took a traditional biscotti recipe and adapted it to make it a little easier to make.
The coconut drizzle adds a nice touch to these Honey Orange Cranberry Biscotti cookies.
