Pumpkin Biscotti

Ive been trying to find a good recipe for pumpkin biscotti for a while. I wanted one that wasnt loaded with butter or oil and one that would go good with my morning coffee. This recipe is from Simply Recipes.



2 1/2 cups flour

1 cup white sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

pinch of ginger

pinch of cloves

pinch of salt

2 eggs

1/2 cup pumpkin

1 tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 350.

In large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, spices, and salt. In med bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in pumpkin mixture. Stir until incorporated. Dough will be crumbly.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray. Form dough into large log, about 1/2 inch thick. Bake 25-30 mins. Cool.

Using serrated knife, cut into 1 inch slices. Bake additional 15-20 mins.

    I love this idea! My boyfriend and I have been experimenting a lot with both dough and pumpkin lately (culminating in pumpkin gnocchi earlier this week), so this sounds right up our alley. Thanks!
