How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter and sugar in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat at low speed until just mixed. (Dough will be sticky.) Stir in cashews, 1 cup mini chocolate chips and cherries.

  3. STEP 3

    Divide dough into thirds. Shape into 3 (12-inch) logs. Place logs, 3 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheet. Flatten each log to 1 1/2-inches in width.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 20 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Cool 15 minutes on cookie sheet.

  5. STEP 5

    Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Cut logs into 3/4-inch diagonal slices with sharp serrated knife. Place slices cut-side down onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes; turn slices. Continue baking 14-16 minutes or until edges are golden brown and crisp. Cool completely.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips and shortening in small shallow microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring every 15 seconds, 60-90 seconds or until chips are melted.

  7. STEP 7

    Dip bottom of each biscotti in melted chocolate, scraping excess off against edge of bowl. Place biscotti slices upright on parchment or wax paper-lined tray; let stand until chocolate is set.
