Pre heat oven 350 degrees   Serves: 6 or more.


6 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup shelled pistachio nuts

3/4 cup dried cranberries



Cream room temperature butter with sugar using a mixer on medium speed.

Combine dry ingredients in a separate medium sized bowl.

Add dry ingredients a cup at a time until incorporated into the butter mixture with mixer setting on low.

Add pistachio nuts and dried cranberries to mixture and continue mixing on low just until the nuts and dried cranberries are combined.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured cutting board and knead for 3 minutes.  Place the dough on the parchment paper and form a  4″ x 12″ x 1″ high log.

Remove the baking pan from the oven and let the biscotti rest for 8 minutes.

Cut the biscotti into 1″ x 4″ slices and place the biscotti back on the baking sheet.

Lower the oven to 300 degrees.

Bake the biscotti for 8 minutes.  Remove from oven and let the biscotti cool.

Packaged in ziplock gallon bag and enjoy!
