1 1/2 cups pistachios 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter 3 eggs 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Biscotti Recipe Preparations
Bake the pistachios on a sheet pan in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes or until the nuts are lightly toasted. Remove from the oven. In an electric mixer, beat the butter until creamy. With the mixer running, gradually add the eggs, sugar, and vanilla; mix until creamed, use a spatula to move excess down of the sides. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt slowly to the mix while the mixer is running. Mix the dough until smooth. Using your hand, mix in the pistachios until evenly distributed. Put the biscotti dough on a lightly floured surface and cut in half. Roll each half into a log, each 12 inches long by 1-inch high. Place the logs on an ungreased sheet pan and bake for 35 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly brown. Let the logs cool for 5 minutes and then place on a cutting board. Slice each log on a diagonal into 12 1-inch thick pieces. Put the biscotti back on the sheet pan and bake 5 minutes. Turn the Biscotti over and bake the other side for another 5 minutes.
