Cranberry-Chocolate Chip Biscotti

This recipe is very easy to make. I have been wanting to make biscotti for a while. When I saw that craisins were BOGO this week, I thought it would be perfect for it. Abe is already asking me to make it when his parents are in town. I plan to bake some oatmeal cranberry cookies with the craisins I have left.

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine the flour and the next 5 ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl. Combine oil, extracts, and eggs; add to flour mixture, stirring until well-blended (dough will be dry and crumbly). Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 7 to 8 times. Divide the dough in half. Shape each portion into an 8-inch-long roll. Place rolls 6 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; flatten each roll to 1-inch thickness.
Bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Remove rolls from baking sheet; cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut each roll diagonally into 15 (1/2-inch) slices. Place the slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 325°, and bake for 10 minutes. Turn cookies over; bake an additional 10 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet; cool completely on wire rack.

Instead of helping, Ezra decided to eat the craisins as fast as he could.
