Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

The red and green make a great Christmas cookie. Have used other nuts instead of pistachios with success. If your pistachios are salted, omit the 1/4 teaspoon salt from the recipe.

This is an Italian-inspired twist on an American tradition. My family loves spumoni ice cream, so I decided I'd try to alter my chocolate chip recipe to fancy them. In this creation, cherries and pistachios liven up already delicious chocolate chip cookies.

These colorful cookies are a new holiday classic! Just make sure to generously flour the surface that you roll the dough out on. That keeps the dough from sticking and breaking as you roll it up.
