Prep time 25 minutes

Baking time 30 minutes

Total Time 55 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1-3/4 cups plain flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2/3 cup chopped pistachios

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Directions

In a small bowl, beat sugar and oil until blended. Beat in eggs, then extracts. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to sugar mixture and mix well (dough will be stiff). Stir in pistachios and cranberries.

Divide dough in half. With floured hands, shape each half into a 12-in. x 2-in. rectangle on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 180° for 18-22 minutes or until set.

Place pan on wire rack. When cool enough to handle, transfer to a cutting board; cut diagonally with a serrated knife into 3/4-in. slices. Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container.
