It was very easy to make and very tasty. I can't believe something so special is so easy to do. I used dried cranberries instead of cherries since that was what I had. and I thought the lime made a very pleasant surprise to the palate. :)

The amount of pistachio completely overwhelmed these biscotti. I would cut back on them by 1/2. The flavor of the cherries barely came out. The lime seemed unusual, but brightened the flavor so much. Overall, these were good, but contained too much of a good thing...and I LOVE pistachio.
