Cranberry Almond Chocolate Biscotti

Makes about 36 

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder 
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla 
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup dried cranberries 
1 cup sliced almonds
8 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350°F.. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat 
liner. In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and 
salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla. With an electric 
mixer, beat the eggs and melted butter into the dry ingredients. Stir in the 
cranberries and almonds. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Flour your 
hands so that the dough won't stick to them, and divide the dough into 3 equal 
8x2x3/4-inch logs. Place one log on the baking sheet and bake 24 minutes or 
until firm and dry to touch. Remove from oven. Reduce oven to 325°F. Transfer 
baked log to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, cut the log diagonally 
into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place slices, cut side down, on the baking sheet. 
Bake about 10 minutes or until dry and dark. Transfer to racks; cool. Repeat 
with the other two logs. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave or over a 
double boiler. Dip each biscotti into
 the chocolate, at an angle, coating the end. Return to a cooled baking sheet 
and chill about 20 minutes or until chocolate is set.
