I also made these Ellie Krieger biscotti for the wedding shower. They were light and nutty!

You will need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 c unsalted, shelled pistachios, chopped

Then you will…

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder and salt.
  3. In batches, add the dry ingredients until the mixture forms a dough. Stir in the pistachios.
  4. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and knead several times.
  5. Shape into a log about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide.
  6. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake 25 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes.
