I can’t vouch for these recipes copied off the internet or cookbooks.
There are 2 recipes below.
1st bake: 25-30 min 2nd bake: 20-25 min
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries (or other dried fruit)
2 1/2 cups whole grain flour or whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pistachios, salted
In a small bowl, cover cranberries in boiling water and soak until softened,
about 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper towels.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Add eggs and vanilla. Add cranberries and pistachios and mix well (by spoon or hand).
Halve dough and form each half into a 13-by-2 inch slightly flattened log.
Place logs on a silicone mat or a greased and floured baking sheet, and space the logs about 3 inches apart.
Bake in middle of oven until golden. 25 to 30 minutes.
Cool logs on baking sheet on a rack about 10 minutes.
Transfer logs to a cutting board and cut diagonally into ½ inch slices with serrated knife. Arrange slices, cut-side down, in a single layer on baking sheet (don’t worry if slices touch each other) Bake in middle of oven, turning once, until golden and crisp,
about 20 to 25 minutes total.
Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti II 350 F
1st Bake: 25 min 2nd Bake: 15 min
1 1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries *
4 T oil
1 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Rum (or other liquor)
1 1/2 Cup Pistachios, chopped
2 3/4 Cup whole grain flour or whole wheat flour
1 ½ tsp Baking Powder
Put sugar in a large bowl. Beat in oil, rum, and eggs. Add flour and all of the other ingredients. Mix well.
Form loaves about 1/2 inch high by 3 inches wide on lightly greased baking sheets.
Bake at 350 F for about 25 minutes. At this point they should be fully baked when tested with a toothpick. Let cool until they can be easily handled–about 5 minutes.
Cut loaves into 1/2 inch widths and lay on baking sheets with a cut side down.
Bake at 350 F for about 15 minutes. Watch carefully and make sure you remove them before the fruit gets dark. Adjust the time and temperature for your oven and your taste.
*softened a little with boiling water if they are very dry (or other dried fruit chopped to dried cranberry size). , pour boiling water over them and let sit for about five minutes. Drain off water. (You may want to do this with the dried cherries but it is not necessary for dried apricots or sugared ginger.)
