"Fat police" reply, and a cranberry ginger biscotti update


I appreciate your "fat police" posting. I have read the guidelines for the 

My error--I used my Master Cook software to output my recipe,and should 
have modified it. The biscotti recipe is based on a recipe from The 
Moosewood Lowfat Cookbook. I did mention in the post that the fat could be 
further reduced by using dried fruit. I have tested this recipe and it 
works well.

Here is the recipe, sans walnuts, on the levels in accordance with the 

Biscotti, Cranberry Ginger (vegan)

Serving Size  : 22   Preparation Time :60:00

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   3      ounces        candied ginger root
   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           cranberries, dried -- dried and sweetened
     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 first).
Using a spatula, shape into two logs, about 2.3-3 inches wide and 10-12
inches long.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (until dough loses its shine.)

Remove logs to a cooling rack. Cool for 15 minutes.

Slice logs on a sharp diagonal, cutting about 11-12 slices per log.

Place slices back on cookie sheet, laying cut side down. Bake 20 more
minutes at 325 degrees. (Flip the slices at the 10 minute mark so they
will be evenly browned.)

Remove to rack and completely cool.
