Two delicious desserts in one; vanilla and maple syrup biscotti studded with chunks of pecan praline brittle.
I love pecan pie but sometimes the texture can be a bit gelatinous.
I love biscotti but sometimes it is almond overload.
So let’s get the best parts about each dessert and mush it up, welcome pecan pie biscotti, you’ll thank me once you try it.
So yes, the second episode of the Great British Bake Off was all about biscuits and the signature challenge was to create biscotti, an Italian twice-baked biscuit. I personally love biscotti with it’s crunchy and crisp texture but there are not many flavor options you can buy in the supermarket.
Homemade biscotti is 100 times better as you can add more new and exciting flavors as well as knowing what exactly is in your biscuit. Plus, you can be more inventive with your recipe and add whatever you what.
What makes this biscotti “pecan pie” biscotti is the addition of homemade maple pecan praline brittle; pecans covered in a maple brown sugar caramel and then chopped up and mixed through the maple vanilla flavored dough. Now, if that isn’t pecan pie, then what is?
These biscotti taste so similar pecan pie, it is actually amazing! The addition of the praline pieces throughout the dough is something special; the sugar coating from the nuts melts into the dough whilst it is baking, creating little pockets of toffee.
Biscotti many sounds technical but it is actually an easy, 1 bowl, 1 pot recipe. The hardest part of the whole recipe is waiting for the biscotti to cool!
This biscotti is delicious with its crisp texture and decadent and moreish flavor, it is so addictive. Serve the biscuits along your tea or coffee or even use them to add extra texture and flavor onto yogurt or chocolate sorbet.
