Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 T. coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup shelled pistachios
  • ½ cup dried cherries or cranberries
  • ½ cup white chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla extract until blended. Add the sugar and mix until completely incorporated.
  • Whisk flour, salt, and baking powder in another bowl then add to the mixing bowl. Mix until the flour is blended with the other ingredients.
  • Fold the pistachios, dried cherries, and chocolate chips into the batter just until combined.
  • Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. With wet hands, divide the dough equally and form into two logs, approximately 12" long and 3" wide. Leave a 3" space in-between the two logs.
  • If needed, re-wet your hands and smooth the logs as best you can.
  • Bake the cranberry pistachio biscotti in a preheated oven for 30 minutes, then remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes more. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
  • Once cooled, gently transfer one log at a time to a cutting board.
  • Using a bread knife, slice each log crosswise into 12 equal portions.
  • Evenly space the biscotti and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

Notes

  • The cranberry pistachio biscotti will harden as they cool.
  • Store the biscotti in a tin container and they will last forever! Okay, not really forever, but you won't have to worry about tossing them out before they're gone.
  • Pecans or walnuts would be a great addition if you don't have pistachios on hand.
  • You can also try other dried fruit, like figs, or mango.
  • If you like, you can drizzle the biscotti with either melted white chocolate or a simple glaze.
  • I sometimes drizzle them with a mixture of 1 cup powdered sugar, whisked with 2 tablespoons orange juice. However, they are perfect without it too.
