Biscotti are crunchy, twice-baked Italian-style cookies perfect for dunking in coffee or tea. Adding almond meal boosts the cookies? fiber. If you prefer, fold in chocolate chips (chop to stretch them) when you add the cranberries and skip the step of melting chocolate and drizzling it over the biscotti.
