Biscotti *Lauren Perry*

This is always a hit around the holidays! Last year a I made a ton and gave it to neighbors with cans of Hot Cocoa :)

4 eggs beat
2 sticks softened butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
3 TBS ainse seed (spice isle at the store)
1 TBS vanilla extract
2 TBS baking powder
4 cups of flour (add 2 cups at a time)
little over 1/2 cup sliced almonds
little over 1/2 cup dried cherries
little over 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips

add above to a mixer and make dough
flour on the cutting board and roll into 3 balls of dough
take 1 ball at a time and roll into a log (make sure little to no cracks appear on the log)
lightly butter and flour cookie sheets (you will probably use 2 cookie sheets)
the log will be about 1 1/2 inches thick and as long as the cookie sheet
bake all 3 at 325' for 25 minutes
remove and set aside to cool on sheet for a few minutes
take a bread knife and cut a bunch of little diagonal pieces- each log should make 10-20 pieces.
pick up pieces and put the cut side face down on cookie sheet and bake again for 20 more minutes!
