Pumpkin Spice Biscotti with Candied Pineapple

Pumpkin Spice Biscotti with Candied Pineapple

Biscotti for every occasion, here is a recipe that is perfect for Thanksgiving, using only a cup of pureed pumpkin puree and is so delicious, you will have it for breakfast, snacks and tea time. I liked using fresh ginger, but dried ginger works as well. 

Adding the candied pineapple in this recipe adds a chewiness factor that you and your guests will notice and enjoy. 

With so many preparations for Thanksgiving, this recipe is perfect because it is the perfect recipe to make ahead, place in a lovely jar and have a simple dessert to offer to the guests that don't want the overly sweet and heavy dessert. I served mine with a vanilla or caramel ice-cream with whipped cream. Perfect!

1 c. sugar

2 tsp. fresh grated ginger or dried

Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla for 3 minutes. Add the pumpkin puree and ginger, beat another 3 minutes or till the mixture is creamy.

In a separate bowl measure out the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, turmeric, nutmeg and candied pineapple. Stir the ingredients till well mixed.

Beating on medium low, add the flour mixture to the egg mixture. The dough should be tacky. (sticky to the touch).

Form three logs of equal proportions, (app. 14 x 2-3 x 1 inch high) and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.  Bake in a 350 ° oven for 25 minutes. Tip: Wetting your hands will help forming your logs.

Remove from oven and let them rest 10 minutes before slicing them in app. 1-inch-wide pieces, you can also cut them diagonally for a different look.

Lower the oven to 325°.

Place each piece on its side back on the baking sheet and bake 10 minutes, after 10 minutes, turn them to the other side and cook them for another 10 minutes. Let cool.

Dip your biscotti halfway into the chocolate or drizzle on top. (look at image)
