WOW- it sure has been a long time since I made biscotti. But with the cooler air & the fall colors, I have really been feeling the need to make a little something to enjoy with some coffee in the morning & some warm tea in the afternoon. So instead of making my usual biscotti recipe, I had to really jazz it up with some fall flavors. Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg & caramel all come together to make Pumpkin Caramel Biscotti. So lovely on a crisp fall day. I know you will love it!
I like having biscotti because it travels well. We can pack some in a little container along with our thermos full of something warm & it’s good to enjoy no matter where we are. Especially on those rare days we can get out to see the fall colors – which are glorious around these parts.
