Pistachio and chocolate chips Biscotti: special treat for everyone!

I think I make a lot of cookies lately ^^, well, it's easy to make, easy to keep and very easy to eat too, hehe. 

Pistachio and chocolate chips Biscotti 
It's suitable for the busy time, ^^" well, I'm a bit busy lately but still trying hard to find enough time to bake. This time I choose the biscotti, but the recipe that I make is not the traditional kind of biscotti. This one contains a lot of butter, when some of the recipes don't have any oil or butter at all.
So, after baking this one will be tender than the one with no fat, fat provides tenderness, the recipe without oil or butter has only fat from egg yolk which is very little. Like the "Nutty Biscotti" that I made before that one doesn't contain butter or oil at all. It's good for anyone who don't like their cookie to be hard or dry and because it's not hard, you can eat it on its own too, hehe.
For the biscotti, the baking time is very important too, first baking is for the cookie to rise until fully cooked, then second is for drying it and create characteristic of biscooti. And after keeping it if you want the cookie to be crisp again, just bake it in the 150°C for 10-15 minutes to dry it again.
Enjoy it with your favorite drinks or on it own, it's a special treat for everyone!
