GLUTEN-FREE RAISIN PISTACHIO BISCOTTI
I use a mix of almond flour and either millet flour or cornmeal for these. They are irresistible. If you soak the raisins in amaretto before you make the biscotti there will be a slightly bitter edge to the flavor. As in other whole grain biscotti I use some butter here, which makes for a more delicate cookie, requiring a slightly thicker slice than a wheat flour cookie.

- Place the raisins in a bowl and cover with warm water (or see variation below). Let sit for 10 minutes, then drain and set the raisins on paper towels.
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment. In a medium bowl, mix together the millet flour or cornmeal, cornstarch, almond flour, baking powder and salt.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar for 2 minutes on medium speed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and the beater with a rubber spatula and add the eggs, vanilla extract and almond extract. Beat together for 1 to 2 minutes, until well blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and the beater. Add the flour mixture and beat at low speed until well blended. Add the pistachios and raisins and beat at low speed until mixed evenly through the dough.
- Divide the dough and shape into 2 wide, flat logs, about 10 inches long by 3 inches wide by 3/4 inch high. Make sure they are at least 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Place in the oven on the middle rack and bake 50 minutes, until dry, beginning to crack in the middle, and firm. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes or longer.
- Place the logs on a cutting board and carefully cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. Place on two parchment-covered baking sheets and bake one sheet at a time in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes. Turn over and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, until the slices are dry and lightly browned.

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Lay the pistachios on a cookie sheet 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 light and fluffy. With the mixer running, gradually add the eggs, sugar, and vanilla; mix until creamed. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix the dough until smooth. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the pistachios until evenly distributed.
- Put the 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 cookie sheet 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 cookies back on the cookie sheet and bake 5 minutes. Turn the cookies over and bake the other side for another 5 minutes. Store cookies in an airtight container.
CRANBERRY PISTACHIO BISCOTTI
The red and green make a great Christmas cookie. Have used other nuts instead of pistachios with success. If your pistachios are salted, omit the 1/4 teaspoon salt from the recipe.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, pistachios, raisins, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla; add to flour mixture, and mix until combined (dough will be stiff; use hands if necessary to incorporate flour). Divide dough in half.
- On a lightly floured work surface, roll each dough half into a 12-inch log; transfer logs to a baking sheet, and gently press to a 7/8-inch thickness. Bake until risen and firm, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely on baking sheet, about 30 minutes.
- Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees. On a cutting board, use a serrated knife to slice logs into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Lay slices in a single layer on baking sheet; bake until dry and just starting to brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.

ALMOND AND RAISIN BISCOTTI
Anne Burrell's biscotti are nicely buttery and crisp-tender, not rock hard. And there's no better pairing than the anise and orange that she adds to the dough.

- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and granulated sugar and beat, with a whisk or hand mixer, until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides periodically. Add the orange zest and beat in the
- whole eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla.
- Gently mix in the flour, baking powder and salt. Once the flour is incorporated, fold in the almonds, raisins and anise.
- Divide the dough into two pieces. If the dough is sticky, dust your hands with a little flour. Roll the dough into two logs the length of a sheet tray and place on the tray. Beat the egg white with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Brush the logs with the egg white and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar. Bake until dark golden brown, slightly crisp around the edges and still a bit soft in the middle, about 30 minutes.
- Remove from the oven to a cutting board and slice on the bias with a serrated knife while they are still warm. Slicing while warm will prevent crumbling.
- Lay the biscotti back on the sheet tray(s), cut-sides down, and return to the oven until a little more golden around the edges, another 10 minutes. This will harden the biscotti but not make them like rocks.
- Remove from the oven to a serving platter and serve with coffee or Vin Santo for dipping.
CINNAMON BISCOTTI WITH PISTACHIOS
Delicious cinnamon biscotti that go great with coffee or tea. Cinnamon chips (found next to chocolate chips) give it an extra burst of cinnamon. Co-workers request that I make these regularly and bring to work for the morning coffee break.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and cloves until well mixed. With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter and sugar together in a separate large bowl until light and fluffy; beat in the eggs, one at a time. Mix in the vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture just until incorporated, and mix in the cinnamon chips and pistachio nuts.
- Divide the dough in half. With floured hands, shape each half into a log about 9 inches long, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the logs with beaten egg white.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the logs are golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool until easy to handle. Reduce oven heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Remove parchment paper from baking sheet.
- Using a serrated knife with a light sawing motion, cut the logs apart into 1/2-inch thick biscotti. Place the biscotti onto the baking sheet, and return to oven.
- Bake in the oven until the biscotti are lightly toasted, about 10 minutes; remove from oven, turn the biscotti over, and toast the other sides for an additional 10 minutes. Allow to cool on wire racks.

Biscotti are easy to make and keep for up to 2 weeks in an airtight tin. They taste even better a day or two after baking. They are perfect for dunking, in red wine, sweet wine, coffee or tea. Almonds or walnuts can replace the pistachios if desired.

- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter and sugar in the work bowl of a stand mixer (or use a large bowl and hand-held electric beaters). Cream butter and sugar at high speed until pale, light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Beat in lemon zest and almond and vanilla extracts.
- In a separate medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. At low speed, add flour mixture to butter mixture. As dough is coming together, add the pistachios and mix until incorporated. You will have a soft, sticky dough.
- Divide dough into 2 equal pieces. With floured hands, shape each piece into a log about 12 inches long. Place logs well apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. (Logs will spread as they bake.)
- Bake logs for 25 to 30 minutes, until firm and lightly browned all over. Remove and cool logs on a rack until cool enough to handle. (Don't rush this step or you risk crumbling when slicing.) Using a serrated knife, carefully cut into slices, crosswise or at a diagonal. Thicker 1/2-inch slices are easier to cut; thinner slices are a bit more elegant.
- Place slices in one layer on baking sheet and return to the oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes (less for thinner slices). Flip each slice and bake again for another 5 minutes. Let cool completely, until biscotti are crisp and dry, before transferring to a tin.
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease heavy large baking sheet. Using hand-held electric mixer, beat egg and sugar in medium bowl until very thick and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in brandy and vanilla. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into egg mixture and blend well. Mix in raisins and almonds. Spoon dough onto prepared sheet to form 10- to 11-inch strip. Using moistened fingertips, shape dough into neat 11-inch-long by 2 1/2-inch-wide log.
- Bake until log just begins to brown and feels firm to touch, about 20 minutes. Cool cookie log on sheet 15 minutes. Maintain oven temperature.
- Transfer cookie log to work surface. Using serrated knife, cut crosswise into 1/3-inch-wide slices. Arrange slices on same baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Turn slices over. Bake until beginning to color, about 8 minutes longer. Cool cookies completely on baking sheet (cookies will become very crisp). (Can be prepared 1 week ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.)
GINGER RAISIN BISCOTTI
- Preheat oven to 350°F Line two 9x4" baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
- Measure flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt into a small mixing bowl and stir together; set aside. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, sugar, molasses, and vanilla until smooth. Add dry ingredients a little at a time, mixing well after each addition to a stiff dough. Divide in half. Flatten each half to 1/2" rectangle on baking sheet.
- Bake 30 minutes; cool slightly. Cut into 1/2" slices and arrange cut sides down on baking sheet. Reduce heat to 200F and bake for 15 minutes. Turn and bake 15 minutes more. Cool completely.
