Updated: Friday, February 7 2014, 08:52 AM CST
It's time for "Chop Chop" with Chef Nazim, executive chef at Doubletree by Hilton.

This morning he shares some Valentine's Day treats. Find the recipe for pistachio cranberry biscotti as well as their Valentine's Weekend Menu.

Pistachio Cranberry Biscotti

1/2 cup pistachio
1/2 cup dry cranberry

1/2 cup unsalted butter, soft
3/4 cup sugar

2 large eggs
4 tsp orange zest

2 cup 2tbsp all-purpose flour
½ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter until light and creamy,
about 2 min. slowly add sugar and beat until light color and fluffy. Now add the
egg and beat until smooth. Then slowly incorporate all the ingredients except
nuts and cranberry.

You need to fold the nut and berry to the dough.

Form the dough to a log and bake it for 25 min in 350 degree
oven. If you want nice color on top then you need to brush egg (optional).

Cool the biscotti and slice them to your desire size. Then
back to the baking sheet and cook it for 5 to 7 min until they are
toasty…………..COOL AND ENJOY.
