    • Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti Mix

      Make your own delicious Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti Mix, an Italian inspired twice baked cookie great with tea or coffee.

      You'll Need:
      3/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries
      3/4 cup shelled green pistachios
      2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
      1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
      2 teaspoon baking powder
      2/3 cup sugar*

      Measure each item into layers if giving as a jar gift, cone gift, etc, or measure into a large ziploc bag or vacuum seal bag & seal.

      (Recipe fits in a 1 Quart Jar)

      Recipe Tag Directions:
      Combine the following until well blended:
      1 Pkg Mix
      1/3 cup butter
      2 eggs

      Divide into 2 loaves on cookie sheet, chilling if necessary to make dough easier to handle. Each loaf should be about 9 inches long and 2 inches wide.

      Bake at 375°F for 25-30 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on sheet for 1 hour.

      Cut each loaf diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices using a serrated (bread) knife. Place slices on an ungreased cookie sheet.

      Bake at 325°F for 8 minutes, then turn over and bake for 8-10 minutes more or until dry and crisp. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

      Makes 32 cookies.

      Hey Buddy,

      Easy fix... rinse with vinegar.

      Exact method varies with dishwasher model. I just open mine up and throw in half a cup.
