The biscotti dough looks pretty much the same as a regular chocolate chip cookie dough. It is slightly sticky to touch, and the handling is also very similar. These Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Biscotti are tailor-made for dunking in coffee or tea. Each bite has a smattering of every flavor. I love to eat these with coffee or tea (dunking optional), bring them to a friend for dessert with ice cream, or just sneak a few from the tin to munch on to satisfy four o'clock.
