      This is from “The Art of Cooking for the Diabetic” by Mary Abbott Hess,
      lhd, ms, rd, fada, published 1996.

      Use natural pistachios for this recipe, not the ones colored red.

      2 eggs
      1/3 c. sugar
      2 tablespoons margarine, at room
      1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
      1 cup all-purpose flour
      1 teaspoon baking powder
      1/3 cup shelled pistachios
      1/3 cup dried cranberries

      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with nonstick
      cooking spray.

      With an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until light and frothy. Add
      margarine and vanilla extract; mix about 30 seconds. Add lour and baking
      powder; mix well.

      Mix in pistachios and dried cranberries.

      In the center of the cookie sheet, shape batter into a tube-shaped loaf
      about 2 inches wide and about 15 inches long. Bake 25 minutes.

      Using a serrated knife, cut loaf into 1/3-inch thick slices. Return
      slices to cookie sheet; bake 5 minutes more. Turn off oven, and let
      biscotti dry in the oven about 30 minutes.

      Cook cookies. Store in a tightly covered tin.

      From Kandy: I cut these on a diagonal as that is how I have seen other
      biscotti cut.
