  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 325°F. Line ungreased cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in large bowl. Add butter; beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add eggs and 1 teaspoon rum extract. Beat at medium speed until well mixed. Stir in cherries.

  3. STEP 3

    Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead 10 to 15 times with lightly floured hands. Divide dough in half; roll each half into 14-inch log.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon rum extract and enough milk for desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled biscotti..

Tip #1

Biscotti means twice-baked. It is the second baking that adds crunchiness to these great dippers and allows for long-term storage with little ill affect. Packaged with coupons or beans from a favorite coffeehouse, they make a great hostess gift or a nice care package for a far-from-home college student studying for exams.

One of the best Biscotti I've made. I didn't have dried cherries so I used dried cranberries instead. I made these for work and it was a hit. I'll definitely make them again.
