Another web find. This biscotti has a fresh taste with orange zest, dried cranberries, white chocolate, and pistachios. Very light and tasty. The combination of flavors is perfect. You may want to add some orange extract or doubled the vanilla extract, or even use some lemon extract. You may need to adjust your oven temperature depending on what type of oven you use. Use an electric knife, it cuts through these biscotti like butter.
