Twice Baked

Almond Pistachio and Cranberry Biscotti 
No, this biscotti recipe is not found in this issue of Donna Hay. I visit the library once a week, and each time I would borrow food magazines like The Australian Good Food,Donna Hay, Delicious,Martha Stewart Living,etc. You be surprised the library do have the latest issues in stock.
This is the first time I baked biscotti and these are not difficult at all. This recipe by Donna Hay has pistachios and cranberries only, but I added extra almonds.
