Ingredients

    *Flour, white, 2 cup
    Baking Powder, 1.5 tsp
    Granulated Sugar, .75 cup
    Butter, unsalted, .5 cup
    Lemon Peel, 1 tsp
    Salt, .25 tsp
    Egg, fresh, 2 large
    Pistachio Nuts (chopped), .75 cup
    Cranberries, dried, sweetened (craisins), 0.66 cup

Directions

Preheat oven to 350.

Line a heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk the flour and baking powder in a medium bowl to blend. Using an electric mixer, beat the sugar, butter, lemon zest, and salt in a large bowl to blend. Beat in the eggs 1 at a time. Add the flour mixture and beat just until blended. Stir in the pistachios and cranberries.

Form the dough into a 13 inch long, 3 inch wide log on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until light golden, about 40 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes.

Place the log on the cutting board. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut the log on a diagnol into 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick slices. Arrange the biscotti, cut side down, on the baking sheet. Bake the biscotti until they are pale golden, about 15 minutes. Transfer the biscotti to a rack and cool completely.

Makes about 2 dozen. Keep stored in an airtight container for up to a week.

    These are incredible. I bought these from a church bake sale and immediately called the lady who made them. She, in turn, told me where she got the recipe. When I went search SparkRecipes, I had no idea I would find it already here! Yum-yum! - 2/13/10
