Preparation Time: 40 mins
Cooking Time: 40 mins
Yield: 40 x 1 biscotti servings
Preheat oven to 325ºF. Spray large cookie sheet with canola oil spray and set aside.
In medium bowl, mix next 7 ingredients and set aside. Using electric mixer or food processor, combine eggs with oil and apple butter (or applesauce) for 10 seconds. Add sugar and blend for 30 more seconds. Add half of dry mixture and process until smooth. Add remaining dry mixture and process until a soft and sticky dough forms.
Transfer dough to a large bowl; fold in dried fruit. Divide dough in half and place on either end of cookie sheet.
With damp hands, form each piece of dough into a log 3 inches wide and about 3/4-inch high. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until firm to the touch. Logs will spread during baking. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes. With serrated knife, slice each log into 1/2-inch cookies, cutting on a diagonal. Bake 10 minutes.
Turn each cookie over and bake 10 more minutes. Turn oven off and leave biscotti in oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack. Store at room temperature.
As a food gift, place in package or tin and tie with a bow!
