Such a perfect little holiday treat when entertaining or drop some into clear cellophane bags, tied with a Christmas ribbon to give as gifts that anyone would be very happy to receive.


White Chocolate Chips for Cranberry White Chocolate Magic Cookie Bars

White Chocolate Chips can be substituted with milk or dark chocolate if you prefer.

Gifts of homemade treats are a family tradition at our house, so bake up some of these scrumptious biscotti for the folks on your Christmas list.

I love the flavour combination that results from dipping these in white chocolate. If you prefer however, milk chocolate or dark chocolate are equally delicious.

Pistachio Cranberry White Chocolate Biscotti - crispy, twice baked biscotti dipped in melted white chocolate. Another ideal gift giving idea for Christmas too.


  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped dried cranberries
  • 1 cup lightly toasted, unsalted pistachio nuts
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips


  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside
  2. Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla extract very well until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Fold in the dry ingredients, just until the flour is incorporated.
  5. Work the dough as little as possible for the lightest biscotti. In the final few turns of folding in the flour, just when it's almost completely incorporated, add the cranberries and pistachio nuts.
  6. Form the dough into two 3 inch wide logs and place 6 inches apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  7. Remove the biscotti from the oven and let cool for about 10-15 minutes before cutting the biscotti on a diagonal into ¾ of an inch thick slices.
  8. Place the biscotti back on the parchment lined cookie sheet and reduce the temperature to 300 degrees F. Bake for an additional 15 minutes before turning the cookies over and baking for an additional 10 minutes.
  9. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  10. In a double boiler melt the white chocolate chips just to the melting point over slow simmering water.
  11. Dip one side of the biscotti into the chocolate and lay them on parchment paper until the chocolate cools and hardens.

I made these recently and they were delicious! We enjoyed some at home and packed the rest up to give to family. Everybody loved them. I will definitely make these again, maybe switching up the dried fruit and nuts.
