What's not to like about a cookie you can have with your morning coffee? These red and green–flecked biscotti are particularly festive. Let them cool thoroughly before dunking the ends in white chocolate. The chocolate sets extra quickly in the refrigerator, which is also the ideal storage space for these cookies, especially if your kitchen is warm from holiday baking.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pistachio nut
  • 1 cup dried cranberry
  • 1 egg whites
  • 10 oz white chocolate chopped and melted

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in vanilla. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture in 2 additions, stirring just until combined. Add pistachios and cranberries; mix well.

Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface, shape each into 12-inch (30 cm) long rectangle. Place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; press to flatten slightly. Combine egg white with 1 tsp water; liberally brush over tops of biscotti.

Bake in 325?F (160?C) oven until light golden and just firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack for 10 minutes.

Transfer logs to cutting board. Using chef's knife, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Stand slices upright, about 1/2 inch (1 cm) apart, on baking sheet. Bake in 300?F (150?C) oven until almost dry, about 35 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool completely.

Dip 1 end of each biscotti in white chocolate, letting excess drip off. Place on waxed or parchment paper–lined baking sheet; refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 20 minutes.
