Pumpkin Biscotti


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cup pecans chopped
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup melted white chocolate for drizzling or dipping


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, brown sugar, pumpkin and vanilla on medium speed with a stand mixer or hand mixer until the mixture thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture, then mix in the pecans (mixture will be crumbly).
  • On a lightly floured work surface, divide the dough in half. Shape each half into a 3x10 inch log. Set the logs lengthwise on the prepared baking sheet, evenly spacing them apart.
  • Dampen your hands and smooth the surface of the logs.
  • Bake until the logs are slightly firm to the touch, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and decrease the oven temperature to 300°F . Let the logs cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the logs to a cutting board. With a serrated bread knife, cut each log diagonally into slices ½ inch thick.
  • Place the cookies, cut sides up, in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake until the biscotti are firm, about 20 minutes, flipping them midway through baking. Let cool completely.
  • Once the biscotti is completely cool, dip or drizzle with white chocolate.


The biscotti tastes best during the first few days, but will keep for up to a month in a sealed air-tight container. You can freeze them in an air-tight container, too.
You can toast the pecans before adding them to the dough: Melt 2 tbsp of unsalted butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add pecans and cook till they are browned, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool completely before adding to dough.
