We absolutely love this recipe ! I have been making Conrmeal Biscotti for Christmas for 8 years. Every year I add another person to the list of people that I gift with biscotti. Year after year they keep asking for biscotti ! This recipe is unique in that it has a wonderful graininess (get a rough ground cornmeal). This is definitely an adult cookie ! Kick it up a notch and soak your cranberries in some brandy or dark rum ! Mmmmm!
One must be careful with the dry to wet ratio, other than that it's a simple recipe.
Thanks Martha - I love it that you kick it up a notch always !

FAIL.... If the recipe requires finely ground cornmeal, it should SAY SO! I followed EXACTLY the directions in my cookbook, "Martha Stewart's Cookies" (first edition), and thought the dough was way too sticky. "But Martha Stewart [or someone in her organization] will have tested the recipe," I thought, and carried on. Big mistake. The dough spread out to cover almost all of the cookie sheet. I see I'm not the first person to have discovered this problem in the cookboook. Boo! RECIPE FAIL!!
Really good recipe -- the slight crunch added by the cornmeal (and the nuttiness) was really nice with the slight salt of the pistachios and the tart-sweet of the cranberries. One hint: this recipe WILL ONLY WORK with finely-ground cornmeal. I used Bob's Red Mill brand cornmeal from the organic section and it worked like a dream.
Followed the receipt but It's too wet to form a log.

I bought the cornmeal from the bulk dept of the grocery store. It was the Medium grind. There wasn't a "fine" available. While the cookie was tasty, the grittiness of the cornmeal made for an unpleasant and almost hazardous experience. Even dunked in milk you have to be careful eating these as to not hurt your teeth.

This is one of the best biscotti recipes I've made. The cornmeal really adds to the quality and essence of this cookie.
I made this biscotti today and it is delicious. I am bringing it to a Christmas dinner this week as a gift for the hostess.
