    My family loves biscotti – the combo of pistachios and cranberries is perfect. I once had a party – there were 4 of us and I gave each one two recipes to gather the ingredients for and we spent the afternoon baking – lot of fun and a lot of biscotti – I had a double oven back then!

    These look delicious!
    I used to make chocolate biscotti with cranberries and pistachios, but haven’t made them in a long time. Now these delicious biscotti reminded me of it. Thank you for that! 🙂
