Learn How it Works...
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1 teaspoon rum extract
1 cup dried cherries, chopped
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
Heat oven to 325°F. Line ungreased cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
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.
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. Place logs 3 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet; flatten each log to about 2 inches wide. Bake 20-25 minutes or until set. Cool 10 minutes on cooling rack covered with parchment paper.
Reduce oven temperature to 275°F. Remove logs from parchment; cut into 3/4-inch diagonal slices. Lay slices onto same cookie sheet, cut-side down. Bake 13 minutes. Turn over; continue baking an additional 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon rum extract and enough milk for desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled biscotti..
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.
