Recipe from

Oxmoor House

Recipe Time

Prep: 28 Minutes
Cook: 49 Minutes
Other: 10 Minutes


6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1 1/2 teaspoons orange extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup orange-flavored sweetened dried cranberries
3/4 cup shelled natural salted pistachio nuts, chopped


Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beating well; beat in orange rind and extract.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to butter mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Stir in cranberries and pistachios.

Divide dough in half. Using lightly floured hands, shape each portion into a 14" x 2" log. Place both logs 3" apart on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 325° for 28 minutes or until firm to the touch. Cool logs on baking sheet 10 minutes.

Cut each log into 1/2"-thick diagonal slices with a serrated knife using a gentle sawing motion. Place slices, cut side down, on baking sheet. Bake 9 minutes; turn cookies over, and bake 12 more minutes. Transfer biscotti to wire racks to cool completely.
