Here are some of my favorite things - my Fiestaware, good cup of coffee, wonderful biscotti and the morning paper.
Pistachio Cranberry Biscotti
1/2 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Pistacios
1/2 cup dried cranberried
*addition if desired - zest of 1/2 an organge
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat eggs and sugar until sugar is dissolved (3-4 minutes) add flavors. Combine flour and remaining ingredients and add to egg mixture. Lightly flour hands and shape dough into 8 in long by 4 inch wide by approx. 1 1/2 inch high log. Place on a baking sheet covered in parchment or a silpat. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool. Cut into 1/4 inch slices (if you want slightly larger pieces - slice on the diagonal). Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes on each side or until crisp.
