A few other favorites are Chocolate Pistachio BiscottiPumpkin Hazelnut White Chocolate Biscotti and Chocolate Chocolate Chip Biscotti.

My husband always brings up the Chocolate Pistachio Biscotti I posted last year. I try not to make those too often because the two of us have no self-control when I bake them (so good!).

This year I played around with this cranberry-pistachio version which I adapted from last year’s recipe. I cut back on the butter a bit which created a stickier dough… a bit messy to work with so I sprinkling some flour on the dough and cookie tin or you can handle the dough with wet hands but the results where so darn good I wouldn’t change a thing next time!

Total: 45 mins
Yield: 42 servings
Serving Size: 1 cookie

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cup all purpose flour, + more for dusting
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup whole unsalted shelled pistachios
  • 1/3 cup craisins
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar, you can put sugar in food processor
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Line baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add pistachios, cranberries and mix.
  • In a stand mixer, mix butter and sugar on medium speed for 1-1/2 minutes.
  • Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until just combined to make a dough.
  • Remove the dough (if too sticky sprinkle flour over it and on work surface).
  • Divide into three pieces and form into long flat logs about 11 inches long x 1-1/2 inches wide.
  • Place on the lined baking sheets and bake 20-25 minutes.
  • When cool enough to handle, gently cut the loaves on the angle into 1/2 inch slices (a serrated bread knife works best).

  • Bake the biscotti for another 3-4 minutes on each side, less if you like it softer.

    Absolutely delicious! I added zest of one orange and used sliced almonds instead of pistachios. 

  2. Gina… these look awesome! Any idea if they can be made with a 1:1 all purpose GLUTEN FREE flour?? Thanks.

    I LOVED these biscotti. Not too hard to make and they last a long time so you can enjoy them for days.

  4. These look great! If I wanted to add white chocolate chips, how much should I add? Or could I replace the pistachios with the white chocolate?

    It's been a while since I've last made biscotti, but it's so simple and the results are amazing. Thanks for the great recipe!

  6. Hey Gina!

    I've just recently fallen across your blog and the receipies i've tried so far have been outstanding! I'm making Christmas gift baskets this year and these are going to be in them. Do you think that I can add white chocolate chips to these? If so, how can I incorporate them?

  7. These were great, they just came out of the oven and I'm snacking on them. I ended up making 4 small logs becuase I had an odd size baking sheet so the pieces are a little smaller. I also added some white chocolate chips to them and I loved them! Thanks!!

  8. I made these today and want to ask two questions.

    1. The dough was quite sticky so I added a little more flour till it was not sticky anymore. Is that normal?

    2. They taste good but felt it was a little too eggy on the taste. What did I do wrong and how can I prevent it from tasting so eggy next time?

    thanks!

  9. These were huge hit at work, especially during our coffee breaks. Dipped the end in melted chocolate on same as well, looked and tasted great.

  10. This came out perfect. I didn't pulse sugar in blender and used raisin instead. So yummy. I ate almost 5 of them and was so happy. Thanks Gina. Also I used 1/4 0 cal sugar, 3/4 whole wheat flour and olive oil instead of butter. By mistake I put 1/4 more all purpose flour, I thought it should not be sticky(dough). yum,yum.

  13. vanilla step was skipped in your recipe. My biscotti is turning out great! they're cooling to be cut but i tasted a little corner and it is perfect!!! I used salted pistachios because that was all I had, but I don't taste it

    I tried it with the 50/50 blend of whole wheat and they came out good! Actually the whole wheat flavor accented the nutty flavor from the pistachios! Kind of like whole wheat pasta does with pine nuts. lol
