Blueberry Cranberry Orange Biscotti

Blueberries are starting to abound at all the local farmer's market.  Yummy! Time to dig out the blueberry cookbook (The Joy of Blueberries) my mother in law gave me and cook up a treat. How about some yummy biscotti?

2/3 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. corn oil
1 T. freshly grated orange rind
1 1/2 t. vanilla
2 eggs

2 1/3 c. flour
1/2 c. blueberries
1/2 c. dried cranberries
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix sugar, corn oil, orange rind, vanilla and eggs until well blended.  Mix remaining ingredients, stir into first mixture.

Knead dough on a lightly floured board until smooth.  Shape half of the dough into a 10 x 3 inch rectangle  on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.  Cool 15 minutes.  Cut the rectangle crosswise into 1/2 inch slices.  Turn slices cut sides down on baking sheet.  Bake about 15 minutes turning once until crisp and brown.  Remove from pan and cool.  Repeat with other half of the dough.
Makes about 3 dozen.
