Honey Orange Biscotti (Low-fat)

Author/Submitted by: Fat-Free Holiday Recipes by Sandra Woodruff, RD
Servings: 24
Categories: Biscotti / Cookies / Desserts / Honey / Low-Fat/Low-Cal

2  cups  Flour
1/3  cup  Sugar
2  teaspoons  Baking powder
1  teaspoon  Grated orange rind, dried
1/3  cup  Chopped pecans, or currants, optional
1/4  cup  Egg whites, or egg substitute (fat-free)
2  tablespoons  Egg whites, or egg substitute (fat-free)
2  tb  Honey
2  tb  Frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and orange rind and stir to mix well. Add the pecans or currants if desired and stir to mix. Add the remaining ingredients and stir just until the dough holds together. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and shape into two 8 x 2 inch logs. (If the dough is too sticky to handle, knead in a little more flour.) Flatten out the logs a little bit or else the crust will split and crack. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and place the logs on the sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 23 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer the logs to a wire rack and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Place the logs on a cutting board and use a serrated knife to slice the logs diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices. Place the slices on a baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees F for 20 minutes or until lightly browned, turning after 10 minutes. Transfer the biscotti to wire racks and cool completely. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.

These are very easy to make and taste great. I made them without the pecans or currants, so there were even less fat and calories.
