These light and crispy Italian cookies are perfect for snacking. I love the combination of the slightly chewy cranberries with the crunchy cookie, and pistachios are one of my favorite nuts. Of course, you can easily substitute another type of nut, if you prefer. If you prefer a biscotti that’s a little sweeter, a simple drizzle of chocolate would be a wonderful touch for these delectable cookies.

Instructions
Preheat oven to 300° F.
  1. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil and sugar until well blended. Add the vanilla and almond extracts, stirring well to incorporate. Beat in the eggs.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder thoroughly. Gradually add to the egg mixture, mixing well. Stir in the chopped pistachios and dried cranberries.
  3. Divide the dough in half. On a parchment lined baking sheet, form each half of the dough into a 12" x 2" log. To make handling the stick dough a little easier, dampen you hands will cool water.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minute, or until the logs are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 275° F.
  5. Cut each log into slices, 3/4 inch thick, on the diagonal. Lay each biscotti on its side on the parchment lined baking sheet. Bake about 8 to 10 minutes, or until completely dry. Remove from oven; cool.
