Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups macadamia nuts coarsely chopped
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup canned unsweetened pure pumpkin
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips for drizzling optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or use parchment paper.
  • Spread the nuts out on the cookie sheet and roast for 10 minutes or until browned. Remove and allow to cool.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice; stir well to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, eggs, and vanilla, stirring well with a wire whisk.
  • Slowly stir the wet pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients. The dough will be very crumbly. Keep working at it, if it needs it add about a tablespoon or less of extra pumpkin puree.
  • Knead or gently stir the cooled nuts into the pumpkin pie biscotti dough. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and with floured hands shape into 2 2-inch by 15 inch logs. (I usually just shape mine on the parchment paper.)
  • Bake for about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Cut each log diagonally into 1/2-inch slices using a serrated knife. Place the slices back on the cookie sheets and bake for 15 minutes. Cool completely on wire racks.
  • If desired, melt white chocolate chips either in a double boiler or in the microwave at 30 second intervals. When smooth, spoon into a condiment bottle and drizzle over the cooled biscotti. Let the chocolate firm up before storing in tins or airtight container.
