Pumpkin Spice Biscotti

  • Yield: 24 biscotti


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  • 4 ounces white chocolate, chopped
  • chopped pecans


  1. Whisk together melted butter, pumpkin, sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in eggs one at a time until smooth. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg until incorporated. Cover dough and chill for 45 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350Β°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide dough in half and shape dough into 2 (10-by-4-inch) loaves on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 30 minutes, until pale golden. Carefully transfer loaves to a wire rack and cool for 15 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut loaves into 1/2-inch slices. Place slices cut side down on baking sheets; bake 12 minutes. Turn slices over and bake for 12 minutes more or until golden. Cool completely on wire racks.
  3. Place white chocolate in a double boiler or in a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water. Slowly melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally until glossy and smooth. Transfer chocolate to a small piping bag and drizzle over biscotti. Sprinkle with pecans and let chocolate set before serving. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.



  1. I’m so glad I found your site! Everything I’ve made (especially those Meyer Lemon cookies!) have been wonderful and there’s rarely a piece left for me. You’d think I’d have learned to save a few by now.

    I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Kind regards, Amy
