Cranberry and Pistachio Greek Biscotti

These Greek Biscotti (Paximadia) are twice-baked for extra crunch. They are also lower in carbs and lower in sugar making them the perfect afternoon treat or special gift (especially for Christmas that is coming up), for family and friends. I have used a combination of flour and almond flour plus pistachios and dried cranberries for the perfect fruity addition. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

When you try traditional paximadia, made from scratch, it will blow your mind. They are absolutely delicious and best eaten dunked in coffee or tea. Some may say they are similar to biscotti but what makes them quite different is they are usually less sweet, more crunchy, and baked twice. Many recipes add almonds, some use anisette, some with cinnamon. You may also see them with baked sesame seeds sprinkled over the top. There are many versions of paximadia, and it all depends upon your family’s recipe.
