Three and a half cups Bisquick heart healthy baking mix
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup dried cherries – I used the brand shown in the picture they were phenomenal. I found the brand over at Walmart in the produce section.
One cup of natural slivered almonds – I also found mine in the produce section at Walmart.
One half cup of egg substitute or two eggs
2 teaspoons of Watkins pure almond extract
Mix all ingredients in your Kitchen Aid mixer with a dough hook, stirring every so often with a rubber scraper, making sure that all the dry ingredients are thoroughly areally mixed with the wet.
Once thoroughly mixed form into narrow logs on a parchment covered baking sheet and bake 20 minutes, or until the tops of the logs are cooked and firm to touch.
Let the baked biscotti logs cool at room temperature, and then slice with a very sharp knife used for slicing bread, into very thin slices.
Bake an additional five minutes on each side at 350 degrees.
You can vary the flavors in all kinds of ways to this biscotti recipe. You can also substitute canola oil for the better common it will come out just as good.
Although the butter will give the Biscotti a rich buttery, almost camel like flavor that goes really well with the almonds and cherries!
