Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
This recipe has great potential but needs major improvements. I made my first batch following directions even though the oven temperatures seemed low to me. I love pistachios but wondered about the cost of that many nuts. I used dried cranberries and candied kiwi fruit slices I found in my local grocery store. I cut the candied kiwi slices into little pieces. The results tasted good but weren't dry enough, etc. I am making a second batch now with changes. I added a little more flour and am cooking them at 350°, as recommended by Joy of Cooking. The loaves are out of the oven now and are nice and brownish. In a few minutes I will slice them and bake the slices at 350° per Joy of Cooking. I know they will make great Christmas presents. I think biscotti made with the original recipe probably won't be dry enough to keep long without getting moldy. Make my changes and you will have a ten-star recipe!
