Pistachio Cranberry Biscotti

PREP TIME: 30 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 20 minutes
SERVES: 30 to 35 cookies

 Amaretti

INGREDIENTS

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pistachios
1 cup dried cranberries

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment. Stir flour with baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Beat butter with sugar in a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high, until pale and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until combined. Stir in pistachios and cranberries. Gather dough together and divide in half on prepared sheet. Shape each portion into a 2-in.-wide and 3/4-in.-high log. Place logs 3 in. apart, as they will spread.
  3. Bake  in centre of oven until tops are almost firm but still golden, 30 to 35 min. Remove from oven and let stand until loaves are cool enough to touch, about 10 min. Cut each diagonally into 1/2-in. slices. Place a rack on baking sheet. Arrange sliced biscotti on rack, cut-side down. Continue baking until very firm and golden brown, 20 to 30 more min. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week or freeze up to 1 month.
