Pumpkin Pie Biscotti

Ingredients
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, mashed pumpkin
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped


Preparation
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; stir well. Combine pumpkin, eggs, and vanilla, stirring well with a wire whisk. Slowly add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. (Mixture will be very crumbly; it will gradually become moist after stirring.)
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add macadamia nuts. Cook, stirring constantly, until nuts are browned. Remove from heat, and cool completely. Knead or gently stir cooled nuts into dough.

Place dough on a lightly floured surface, and divide into 4 portions. Lightly flour hands, and shape each portion into a 1" x 15" log. Place logs 3" apart on lightly greased large cookie sheets.

Bake at 350° for 23 minutes; cool logs 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300°.

Cut each log crosswise into 1/2" slices, using a serrated knife. Place slices on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 300° for 15 minutes. Cool completely on wire racks.

I'm not a big pumpkin fan, but it does sound good even with that!

I like Apple Pie and ice cream. Yum!

Last year i gave Christmas biscotti as gifts. I used dried cranberries and pistachios and they made it very festive! Dunked them in white chocolate with a sprinkle of red and green sugar. I got the recipe from Everyday Italian on Food Network. 101 more days!

One of our favorite recipes is cranberry bread. The recipe is on the site here and, when it is done correctly, it is nice and moist and very tasty.
