Cherry Biscotti

I must apologize to my readers. I have been caught up in another program and have neglected my blogs. I must learn to use my time more wisely and never forget that you, my dear followers, deserve better. But the good news is... I am back to posting new recipes for you to try. So here is one you may like, it's one we use sometimes when we want something festive or for a holiday. You can add almonds, walnuts or another dried fruit if you like.


* 2 & 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 3/4 cup sugar**
* 1/2 tsp. baking soda
* 2 eggs
* 2 egg whites
* 1 1/2tsp. almond extract
* 1 cup Fiber One Cereal
* 1/2 cup dried cherries


Heat oven to 350 F degrees. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Stir together flour, sugar, and baking soda in large bowl. Beat eggs, egg whites, and almond extract with wire whisk until foamy. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture until well blended. Mix in cereal and cherries with hands. Turn dough onto floured surface. Knead lightly 8 to 10 times.

Shape into one 16-inch roll or 2 8-inch rolls. Place on cookie sheet. Flatten to about 1 inch thick. Bake 30 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet; cool on wire rack 10 minutes. Cut into 1/2 inch slices. Reduce oven temperature to 300 F degrees. Stand slices upright on cookie sheet; bake about 20 minutes longer or until crisp and light brown. Cool completely on wire rack
