Default Maple Pecan Biscotti

I had an urge for biscotti, so I searched recipes for stuff I had on hand.

This was my first or second time making biscotti. Easy when you have a stand mixer!

These were good, but not maple-y enough enough for me, even though I used some maple extract in the icing.

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Bake in oven for 20 - 30 minutes or until wooden tooth pick comes out clean when inserted in center.
Cool loaves on cookie sheet on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325F. Transfer loaves to cutting board , with serrated knife cut diagonally 1/2" thick slices. Place cut side down on cookie sheet, bake in oven for 8 minutes, turn slices over, baking 8 - 10 minutes more or until dry and crisp.

I must lead a sheltered life. I had no clue what biscotti was. Sure looks good though.
