Pumpkin spice biscotti goes great with warm coffee and adds a nice crispy touch to a morning breakfast.


  • 3 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and pumpkin pie spice. Stir to combine.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin puree and vanilla extract. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture and stir to combine. Fold in chopped pecans. (At this point, the dough will be crumbly.) Flour your hands and lightly knead the dough until well combined.
  4. Form the dough into one long log, about 15-20 inches long and 5-6 inches thick. The dough should be relatively flat, only about ½ inch high. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the center is firm to the touch. Let biscotti cool for 15 minutes and then, using a serrated knife, cut into 1 inch wide pieces. Lay each slice on its side. Turn the oven to 300 degrees and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. Cool completely.
  5. Stir together confectioner’s sugar and 1 tablespoon water until smooth, adding another tablespoon water, if necessary, to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over biscotti and serve.
