    I love this recipe. This is the recipe that I used to teach to my students in high school for many years. They did a good job or I was a good teacher. Ha,ha. I'm a Family and Consumer Science teacher that tought for 40 years. I am retired now but still baking.

    I LOVE THIS RECIPE! I make these all the time for parties and holidays EVERYBODY RAVES they think its an old-world family recipe. Try making these bite-sized and adding white chocolate chips or dipping. I use endless combinations of fruits and nuts and other favorings with this one basic recipe. Get creative and enjoy. Try almonds and dark chocolate, means and apricot, figs and walnuts.....

    I thought this recipe looked fantastic, but the store was sold out of boiling water! Couldn't get a drop from the neighbours either. Maybe next time!

    Fantastic! I never thought making biscotti would be this easy. Next time I will experiment with different dried fruit and nuts and chocolate dip. Thanks, this great recipe encouraged me to keep trying new things!

    really nice recipe, easy and elegant! I cut the recipe in half and made and I got only one and half a dozen. I feel almond extract will be a better substitute for vanilla for this one, will make it again. Love it! Thanks so much!!!

    I've always been under the impression that biscotti was difficult to make, but after watching this video I decided to give it a try. It was just as easy as it looked, and they were delicious! My boyfriend's cousin actually said they were better than the biscotti he ate when he lived in Italy.

    I wanted to give up baking forever today after loosing several rounds with new cookie recipes. My last recipe on the list was the biscotti. I'm so glad I didn't stop after the cookies! The biscotti (my first biscotti ever) turned out fantastic! Easy enough for a first-timer and fast enough to make in less than two hours. The cranberries and pistachios make a great pair. On to my next biscotti recipe!

    I have wanted to make these for ages. I just loved the red/green colors. I used glace cherries instead of cranberries, they are much brighter red and sweeter too. I'd like to know how long they would keep if I made some to give as Christmas gifts.

    recipe was very easy, makes a lot. I thought they could be a bit sweeter, also i have made another recipe in the past using almonds instead of pistachios and used 1 tea vanilla and 1 tea almond extract and they had more flavor. am making again tonite!
