Coffee Pumpkin Biscotti

To be honest, I started to drink coffee just because it felt cozy.

It was all about the coffee-moment.

When I was a little girl, my mom, sister and older cousin chatted for hours drinking coffee. I knew I had to learn how to drink it to really be part of these coffee get-togethers.

I started by adding a lot of milk and lots of sugar. But as time has passed, I’ve fallen for coffee more and more, with less milk and no sugar (this is a recent accomplishment).

Nowadays, I love coffee in desserts, cakes, cookies… You name it!

I hope you enjoy these biscotti as much as I do!

Coffee Pumpkin Biscotti: around 15 biscotti

  • 160g all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons espresso powder
  • 50g butter room temperature (I used grass fed)
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 130g pumpkin puree

 

  • Preheat oven at 175ºC and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, salt and espresso powder. Set apart.
  • Cream butter and sugar in an electric mixer.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract.
  • Add pumpkin puree and when the batter is even, mix dry ingredients.
  • Put the batter in the tray and, with a spatula or your hands wet, give it a rectangle shape. It should be around 2 centimeters tall and about 10 centimeters width. This last measure will be your biscotti length.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until brown.
  • Take the rectangle outside of the oven and let cool.
  • Set oven temperature to 150ºC.
  • Cut rectangles into bars of 2 centimeters with a serrated knife in order to have the cleanest cut.
  • Put them again in the tray and bake for other 20 minutes (approx.). They shouldn’t get browner, just drier and crunchier.
  • Take biscotti out of the oven and only when they are completely cool, put them in an air proof container.
