Chocolate, Pistachio and Cranberry Biscotti

3/4 cups Minced Dark Chocolate (I Used 72% Cocoa)
1 cup Brown Sugar
3 whole Eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1- 3/4 cup Flour
13 cups Dark Cocoa Powder
1/2 teaspoons Salt
1 cup Raw Pistachios
1/2 cups Dried Cranberries


1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan with a sheet of parchment or a Silpat. 2. In a small bowl, combine the finely chopped chocolate and the brown sugar. 3. In the bowl of a standing mixer, whip the eggs and vanilla until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. 4. Add the sugar/chocolate mixture and mix on high another 2 minutes. 5. Meanwhile, combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. 6. Add the dry ingredients to the mixer and combine until you have a wet cookie dough. 7. Add the pistachios and the cranberries and gently mix them in. 8. Using a well floured surface (and hands), form a log out of the dough. At the center it should be about 1 thick and about 4 across. 9. Put the cookie dough on the sheet pan with a Silpat or with parchment paper, and bake the biscotti log for 40 minutes. 10. Let the log cool slightly, and then transfer the log to a cutting board. 11. With a serrated knife, slice the biscotti into 1/2 thick wide pieces. 12. Lay them on their sides on the same baking sheet. 13. Bake them for 15 minutes, and then flip the cookies and bake an additional 15 minutes on the other side. 14. Let cool and enjoy!
