Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 tsp lemon zest
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup hazelnuts, almonds or pistachios coarsely chopped
2/3 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line a heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk the flour and baking powder in a medium bowl to blend. Using an electric mixer, beat the sugar, butter, lemon zest, and salt in a large bowl to blend. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the flour mixture and beat just until blended. Stir in nuts, cranberries and chocolate chips.

Form the dough into a 13 inch long, 3 inch wide log on the baking sheet. Bake until light golden, about 40 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes.

Place the log on the cutting board. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut the log on a diagonal into ½ to ¾ inch thick slices. Arrange the biscotti, cut side down on the baking sheet. Bake the biscotti until they are pale golden, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a rack and cool completely.

The biscotti can be made ahead. Store them in an airtight container up to 4 days or wrap then in foil and freeze in resalable plastic bags up to 3 weeks.
