Holiday Cranberry & Pistachio Biscotti
Beat 1/3 C. butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add 2 eggs and beat on medium until well combined. Using a wooden spoon, stir in contents of jar just until combined.
Divide into 2 loaves on cookie sheet, chilling if necessary to make dough easier to handle. Each loaf should be about 9 inches long and 2 inches wide.
Bake at 375° F. for 25 - 30 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on sheet for 1 hour.
Cut each loaf diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices using a serrated (bread) knife. Place slices on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 325°F for 8 minutes, then turn over and bake for 8 - 10 minutes more or until dry and crisp. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
Makes 32 cookies.
