Holiday Biscotti

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s definitely a white Christmas for me. Here in South Dakota we’re experiencing a massive blizzard, but that’s alright–I’m safe at home with family and plenty of baking ingredients to keep me occupied(and fed!). One of my favorite things to bake and eat is biscotti, which is basically a twice baked cookie without all the sugar. And with all the sugary Christmas goodies around, this sounded like just what I needed. I found a recipe for cranberry and pistachio biscotti dipped in white chocolate from closet cooking. The biscotti turned out great and it looked very festive with the green pistachios, red cranberries, and white chocolate. It made for a great Christmas morning treat!
