Pecan & Maple Syrup Biscotti



I love biscotti! I made chocolate ones a while back and they were delicious & surprisingly easy to make.

This time I really fancied making them with that fab combination of maple syrup & pecan nuts.


They are great to give as gifts as they look pretty & keep well too.

In a bowl, sieve the flour & baking powder add the salt and stir briefly.

Beat butter & sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs & maple syrup and beat until combined.




Tip in half the flour and stir. Then add the rest of the flour and pecans, you should have a sticky dough. On a lightly floured surface split the dough into 2 equal bits. Roll each into a log about 12 inches long and place on the baking sheet. Flatten slightly. Sprinkle with icing sugar.

Cool for about 5 minutes then place on a chopping board and cut into 3/4” slices on the diagonal. Place these cut side down on the baking sheet and bake again until crisp about 10 minutes. Cool. They keep really well in a tin & are delicious with coffee!
