How much cranberries and pistachios? Not listed on recipe.
These cookies were delicious. The fresh orange with cranberries gave a great burst of flavor. I took them to a Church social and they received great reviews. This will be one of my "go to" recipes whenever coffee is being served and on any day of the year!
First time making biscotti.... Turned out well, went over well with everyone
For a sturdier biscotti, try using unbleached all purpose flour.
These are incredibly good and easy to make! I made the dough the night before and baked them in the morning. Brought a warm batch into work and they disappeared instantly. Next time I make them, I'm doubleing the cranberries.
These are terrific. I made these a few days before Christmas and had to hide them so they wouldn't all be eaten before the holiday. I had run out of orange extract but they tasted fine anyway. Just be careful with the second cooking step. My oven might be a little too hot and they browned more than they should have. As for the person who had problems with cracking -- try using a bread knife or a smaller serrated one, like a tomato knife. Anyway, the house smelled wonderful. I have some leftover pistachios and dried cranberries so I plan to make them again very soon. And I might dip them or drizzle them with melted white chocolate.

It was easy to make.
I love Biscotti! When I saw this receipe, I knew I had to try it. First time I made my own. Delicious and so pretty with the red of the cranberries and the green of the pistachios. It's a keeper and already in my recipe book for next year. I didn't use the orange extract, just addedd a little more vanilla. I used fresh grated orange peel.
<p>Made these yesterday for my first ever biscotti recipe. They turned out great! Seemed much easier than I thought they'd be. Very yummy. Can't wait to try some other biscotti recipes for Christmas presents! UPDATE: I made two other biscotti recipes (1 from this site and one from another) and this was the best one by far. This recipe makes a very nice dough, enough biscotti for all, and the taste is wonderful. The recipe and instructions were spot on. I'll definitely be making this recipe again.</p>
