Cranberry Walnut Biscotti

One of my dh favorites!  Cranberry and walnut biscotti.  So easy to make, so delicious.  Here's the recipe:

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
3 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla (or 2 teaspoons orange flavored liquor)
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped
3/4 cups chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 F.  Combine first seven ingredients.  Whisk eggs and vanilla together.  Add wet to dry and blend until combined.  Fold in cranberries and walnuts.  Divide batter in half.  With wet hands, make a log out of each piece.  It should measure about 14 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide.  I just make them on the cookie sheet (not greased).  Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from oven, lower oven to 300 F.  Slice on a diagonnal and separate.  Return to oven and bake for another 20 minutes.  If still not dry, turn off oven and let sit for 10 more minutes.  Remove from oven and place on a rack to cool.  Store in a cool dry place.
