I have several friends who “do the happy dance” each Fall, when their local coffee stand begins offering their seasonal Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Cracks me up to see how fast the “news” spreads via Social Media. Well… if you like Pumpkin Spice Lattes, then I’m willing to bet you will love these Pumpkin Spice Latte Biscotti!

I saw this recipe pop up on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. I’ve made biscotti before (here’s my recipe for Orange Almond Biscotti -yum!), so I knew I would enjoy the flavor combination of these biscotti.

How can you go wrong with a yummy coffee drink in COOKIE FORM? It’s practically impossible! Here’s how easy these pumpkin spice latte biscotti are to make:

Prepare Batter For The Pumpkin Spice Latte Biscotti

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and spices, then set aside. See the ground coffee in the middle of the pile? Yes!

Dry ingredients for biscotti are mixed together in large bowl.

Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until creamy, and then add in eggs, and beat well.

A stand mixer is used to blend butter, sugar and eggs to make biscotti batter.

Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract to the batter, and beat these, until incorporated.

Pumpkin puree and vanilla extract are added to the biscotti batter, to combine.

Now add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, a little at a time, beating well until ingredients are fully combined.

Dry ingredients are now added to the wet ingredients to make the pumpkin spice latte biscotti batter.

Prepare The Pumpkin Spice Latte Biscotti Batter For Baking

The batter for the pumpkin spice latte biscotti will look like this when done… see the little coffee granules? Ooh…

Flecks of instant coffee are visible in the biscotti batter.

Spoon the soft dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Make two separate mounds (about 3 inches wide by 12 inches long) of dough several inches away from each other. Don’t forget to do this, because the dough will spread while baking.

Two log shapes are formed by spreading out the pumpkin spice latte biscotti batter on parchment paper.

Shape The Biscotti Logs

Using moistened hands, shape the dough into 3 inch wide by 12 inch long logs, remembering to leave several inches space between logs, cause they will spread when baking.

Batter is shaped into 2 log shapes before baking for the first time.

Bake The Biscotti

Bake the biscotti logs in a preheated 300 degree oven for 35-40 minutes, until firm (mine took 40 minutes). Please see my note on oven temp. in the NOTES section of the printable recipe! When done, remove the pan from the oven, and let the biscotti rest for a full 10 minutes.

After baking, the biscotti dough has spread considerably, and cools on parchment paper.

After 10 minutes, remove the biscotti logs to a cutting board, and remove the parchment paper. Carefully slice each log into 12 (one inch) slices along the short side, using a serrated knife to cut.

Each of the biscotti logs are sliced into 12 portions before they are baked again.

Time To Bake The Pumpkin Spice Latte Biscotti AGAIN

Once cut, carefully move the slices one at a time (I used the blade of the knife) back to a baking sheet (no parchment paper needed this time), making sure to place the cut side down. 

After 15 minutes, remove the biscotti from the oven, and turn them over. Put them back in the oven and bake an additional 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crispy. I actually let the second cooking go for 20 minutes.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Biscotti slices are baked a second time, cut side down.

When done, remove the biscotti to a wire rack and let the cookies cool down completely.

Make The Chocolate Drizzle

While the biscotti cools, make a chocolate drizzle to decorate them with, once completely cooled. Melt chocolate chips and a little bit of vegetable shortening in the microwave. Microwave 30 seconds on high. Stir. Microwave again for 30 seconds on high. Stir.

Chocolate is melted with shortening, to make a drizzle for topping the biscotti.

Drizzle the tops of the biscotti with the melted chocolate. II use a honey dipper, but you can use a fork, etc.. Let the chocolate harden, then “PAINT” the bottoms of each biscotti with the melted chocolate, using a pastry brush. Let the chocolate firm up fully before serving.

Ready To Serve And Eat!

Once the chocolate has hardened up on the top and bottom of each cookie, the pumpkin spice latte biscotti are ready to eat… or dunk in a hot cup of coffee!

Recipe Notes

*FYI- I noticed that these biscotti were not as crunchy the day after I made them. After looking at my other recipes for biscotti, I'm convinced the lower oven temp. for this particular recipe played a part. Next time, I will bake these at 350 degrees, then place the cut slices standing upright on sheet (as opposed to flipping to both sides), and bake for approx. 20-25 min. until firm and set... cause we want crunchy biscotti, right?

  1. You don’t list pumpkin purée in the list of ingredients for the recipe, but talk about it adding it in the instructions.
    How much pumpkin purée should be added?
