I decided to start with the simple biscotti. Having never made a biscotti I thought they might be a bit difficult. The only problem I had was lifting the partially cooked "logs" to the cooling racks before the slicing began. Be careful, be very very careful.

I copied this picture from the BonAppetit website. I wanted you to see the beautiful green pistachios next to the bright red cherries. My picture (down below) shows brown pistachios because I used roasted instead of raw nuts.
Pistachio and Dried-Cherry Biscotti
Makes about 4 dozen
This particular recipe comes from Karen Demasco, located in Locanda Verde, New Your City. She says that the "[b]iscotti are the perfect ending to a great meal, especially with an expresso. A scoop of ice cream makes them even more special." I have to agree. Now who can I give all these biscotti to.
Life is good - enjoy!
