    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 30
    ½ c. Hy-Vee unsalted butter
    1 c. plus 1 tbsp Hy-Vee granulated sugar, divided
    2 ½ tsp. Hy-Vee baking powder
    1 tsp. anise seed, crushed
    2 Hy-Vee large eggs
    1 Hy-Vee large egg, separated
    3 c. Hy-Vee flour
    ½ c. candied cherries, chopped
    ½ c. candied pineapple, chopped
    1 tbsp. orange zest
    1 tsp. water


    1. Cream butter in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.
    2. Add 1 cup sugar, baking powder and anise seed. Beat until combined well.
    3. Beat in 2 whole eggs and 1 egg yolk, reserving the egg white.
    4. Beat in as much flour as possible with the mixer. Stir in remaining flour, cherries, pineapple and orange zest with a spoon.
    5. Divide the dough in half. Shape each half into an 11-by-2-by-1-inch loaf. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
    6. Stir together the reserved egg white and water; brush on dough. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp sugar.
    7. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on sheet for 15 minutes.
    8. Cut each loaf diagonally into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch slices and place cut-side-down on lined sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove and turn slices over; bake 10 to 15 minutes more or until crisp.
    9. Remove biscotti to wire rack to cool completely.
