  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter - room temperature, and extra for baking sheet
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour - and more for baking sheet
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup pistachio nuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour a baking sheet and set aside. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs; beat until well combined. Add flour mixture, and stir to form a stiff dough. Stir in pistachios and chocolate chips.


Step 2

Transfer dough to prepared baking sheet; form into a slightly flattened log, about 12 by 4 inches.


Step 3

Bake until a little bit firm, about 25 minutes.


Step 4

Cook on a rack for about 5 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300F.


Step 5

Cut biscotti diagonally using a serrated knife. Cut into 1-inch-thick slices. If you cut them too think, they may dry up and end up too hard. Careful when you cut since the biscotti may break.


Step 6

Arrange biscotti with their sides down on a baking sheet and bake until crisp but still slightly soft in the center (about 8 minutes). This is key since you do not want to eat a biscotti that it is so hard you inevitably have to dip it in milk.


Step 7

Once baked, put them in a rack and let them cool down.


Step 8

I poured some white chocolate on top but they are perfect without it. This is definitely the best double chocolate pistachio biscotti I have ever had. (this is from the Kitchen of Martha Stewart)
