Spring Biscotti

Another web find. This biscotti has a fresh taste with orange zest, dried cranberries, white chocolate, and pistachios. Very light and tasty. The combination of flavors is perfect. You may want to add some orange extract or doubled the vanilla extract, or even use some lemon extract. You may need to adjust your oven temperature depending on what type of oven you use. Use an electric knife, it cuts through these biscotti like butter.

    Fantastic flavor, texture & appearance! This is my second year making this recipe. We enjoy them at home and as gifts to family & friends. With their red, green & white color, they are pretty & the flavor does not disappoint. The only alteration I made was to paint one side with white chocolate. Delicious.

    These are delicious,--followed the recipe to the letter. I'll do the same next time too-very good. Pain shelling all those nuts. I'm betting I can find them shelled in the (bulk) section of Wegmans. This is perfect with tea or coffee after dinner or late when you know you should not eat something but temptation gets you. only 54 calories and all that fifer. Bill K. #1440799

    These were so good that DH wouldn't let me add them to my baskets. I made a similar biscotti in the past but the addition of white chocolate and orange zest put these over the top. Thanks
