Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 350° F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until smooth. One at a time, beat in the eggs. Mix in the almond extract.

  • With the mixer on low, gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Mix in the cranberries and pistachios.

  • Divide the dough in half and shape into two 10-by-2-inch logs. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until just golden around the edges and firm to the touch, 22 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes.

  • Reduce oven to 300° F. Using a serrated knife, cut the logs into ½-inch-thick slices. Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake until dry and crisp, 15 to 18 minutes per side.

  • Keep at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
