I pulled my recipe from Word, and pasted it into email, and email didn't
know what to do with a few of the characters and replaced them with
question marks. My apologies! Here is the corrected version:
Cranberry Walnut Biscotti
These have become our latest favorite in our household. Although the recipe
calls for walnuts, skip them and use candied ginger instead, or dried
currants or raisins.
Serving Size: 22
Preparation Time: 60:00
3 ounces walnuts (about 1/2 cup)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups flour -- ( I use spelt, whole grain)
1/4 cup soy flour, defatted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup craisins (dried, sweetened cranberries)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup egg replacement -- flax seed liquid*
Mix ingredients together in mixer. (Don't over mix.)
Turn the gooey dough onto a baking pan (spray with pan release like a pan
release agent first). Using a spatula, shape into two logs, about 2.5 to 3
inches wide and 10-12
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (until dough loses its shine & is
browned a bit.) Remove logs to a cooling rack. Cool for 10 minutes. Slice
logs on a sharp diagonal, cutting about 10-12 slices per log.
Place slices back on cookie sheet, laying cut side down. Bake 10 min. each
at 300 degrees (turning once during second baking).
Remove to rack and completely cool.
* 1 tablespoon flax seed + 3 tablespoons water (boiled, then seed removed)
= 1 egg replacement. You can also use 2 egg whites for each egg called for
in a recipe. This recipe originally called for 2 eggs (whole), plus 2 egg
whites, so the flax liquid required totals 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup (3 T.
per egg, plus 1 T. per white.)

* replace the soy flour with cocoa, and replace the walnuts with hazelnuts.
* replace the walnuts with dried figs and/or currants (this will reduce the
total fat per serving too.)
* use a mixture of flours instead of wheat or spelt-such as rice flour, soy
* replace the soy flour with cornmeal for extra crunchiness and replace the
sugar with 1/3 cup maple syrup
* a real zinger is to replace the walnuts with diced candied ginger
