    Default Granola Biscotti

    Here's a great snack recipe that you can take with you or give the kids in the morning before school

    1/4 cup butter, softened
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 egg white
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup reduced-fat granola
    2/3 cup dried cranberries
    In a small mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg, egg white and extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture. Break apart any large pieces of granola; stir granola and cranberries into dough.
    Divide dough in half. With lightly floured hands, shape each portion into a 12-in. x 1-1/2-in. rectangle; place each on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

    Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove to wire racks; cool for 5 minutes.
    Transfer to a cutting board; cut with a serrated knife into 3/4-in. slices. Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets.
    Bake for 5 minutes. Turn and bake 5-7 minutes longer or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
