I am still working with this recipe. 1/2 cup of pumpkin didn't make the batter come together. I added more pumpkin. Then I read what others posted. I cooked the sliced cookies an extended 15 minutes. This recipe is a work in progress.
Pumpkin Pie Biscotti
This twice-baked cookie with staying power makes enough extras to send as gifts.
Yield: 8 dozen
- 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
- 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.
