I gave out biscotti as gifts for X'mas and everyone loves it. It is easy to make and can keep longer. I adopted the recipe from Donna Hay's magazine Dec/Jan 2012 issue (bought in Sydney by my 2nd daughter).
Mix 300g plain flour, 1.5 tsp baking powder and 165g sugar to combine. Add in 3 eggs (lightly beaten), 1 tbsp vanilla extract, 100g orange peel, 130 dried cranberries and 140g pistachios.
Use both hands mix ingredients evenly and shape into 2 balls.
