Cherry Pistachio Biscotti

For some reason, each year I make these biscotti for the New Year’s weekend.  I think because they are so delicious with a warm cup of coffee and a great way to relax the morning of the new year.  Treat yourself and make a batch of these wonderful crunchy biscotti.  Share with friends, they will be glad you did!   Happy New Year!
