Day 102: Orange Pistachio Biscotti

Happy father's day everyone! Today I made orange pistachio biscotti for my dad because biscotti is his favorite. Orange and pistachio is not the very first thing I would think of when I say "common". Actually I was gonna make my dark orange biscotti for my dad today, but I didn't have any almonds. Improvising, I decided to pistachios. I had never tried pistachios with orange so I was very very nervous as I put in the oven. Luckily the smell made me know it was the right move, these taste amazing!

Like I said above, pistachios and orange don't seem like a common flavor combo...

but they are amazing together!

And especially good for chai. That's the way my dad likes his biscotti - dipped in chai!

Make sure you have some pistachio chunks. They can't be blended finely.
