This is a delightful accompaniment to that afternoon cup of coffee.
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/2 cup orange-flavored sweetened dried cranberries, chopped
Coarse grain decorator sugar
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine sugar, butter, orange zest and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until just mixed. Stir in blueberries and cranberries.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth, about 10 times. Divide dough in half.
Shape each half into 10x3-inch log on ungreased baking sheet; flatten slightly. Sprinkle with coarse grain sugar. Bake 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and top is slightly cracked. Cool 20 minutes.
Cut each log diagonally into 1/2-inch slices using serrated knife. Place slices, cut-side down, onto baking sheet. Return to oven; bake 15-20 minutes, turning once, until golden brown and crisp. Place onto cooling rack. Cool completely.

Liked the idea of these, followed the recipe except only used the cranberries. Good flavors but the logs were very difficult to cut, crumbly even when cooled.
I like a crunchier biscotti so I decreased the amount of butter to 1/4 cup. The combination of colors and flavors of the berries make it both eye pleasing and delicious.
A perennial favorite with a cup of coffee these biscotti recipes are perfect for any season.
