Better than any treat you’ll get at your local coffee shop, this decadent and fall-inspired Pumpkin Biscotti will be a winner in your home. Make sure to make a cup of coffee or tea to go with it. They pair perfectly together!
Hi! I’m Cyndi from My Kitchen Craze here to celebrate that it’s officially Fall! You know what that means, right? It’s time to go crazy for pumpkin, cool weather, and earlier nights. I love when it gets darker earlier actually. I’m not one of those that likes it getting dark at 8pm. I’m a night girl, so if it doesn’t get dark until 8pm then I feel like I need to stay up until midnight, and that doesn’t do well for me the next morning. :)
Also, don’t get me started on the weather. I live in the desert, so I am so looking forward to cooler times ahead. When it’s cooler, I crave things like pumpkin, apples, sweaters, and warm drinks. I love everything about the cooler weather, but my favorite Fall flavor is pumpkin.
I’m a huge pumpkin lover. I love anything and everything about it. How about you? Some people are iffy about pumpkin, but not me. Today I wanted to share a fun recipe with you, something you can have with a cup of coffee on those cold days and sit by the fire.
Have you ever made biscotti before? I always thought biscotti was one of those things you could only get at a coffee shop. That was until about 5 years ago when my girlfriend, Jessica was over for the weekend, and she told me we should make biscotti. We made it and both fell in love. She and I love biscotti so much that when I made this pumpkin biscotti, I packaged some and mailed them to her in California. She finished them in three days! :)
This biscotti is sweet but not overly sweet. I ended up adding some dark chocolate because I always love a little oomph with my biscotti. You could add it or leave it off. The choice is yours. You have to be patient when making biscotti. The key is to dry it out, but not burn it. Biscotti has a crunchy texture, hence the reason most people like to dunk it in their coffee or tea.
If you’ve never made biscotti and you’re a biscotti lover like me, I highly suggest you make this recipe this Fall season. Grab that blanket, cup of coffee/tea and a few pieces of Pumpkin Biscotti. It will make your day. Enjoy!
