Hazelnuts, white chocolate and pumpkin spice biscotti are the perfect combination for these crispy “adult” cookies. Biscotti is an Italian crescent shaped cookie that is twice baked and perfect for dunking into coffee, tea or even milk.
Pumpkin Hazelnut White Chocolate Biscotti
My favorite way to eat biscotti cookies are with warm milk. A few other favorites are Pistachio Cranberry Biscotti, Chocolate Pistachio Biscotti, and Chocolate Chocolate Chip Biscotti.
If you have electricity and a warm oven to bake these in today, take a moment to be thankful and think about the hundreds of thousands who do not.
It’s Sunday, day seven of no electricity for many of us on the South Shore of Long Island, Staten Island, Brooklyn and New Jersey. It’s getting cold outside and gas has been very hard to come by. Luckily I am fortunate and was able to stay at my Mom’s last night.
I am so thankful for my family, the roof over my head and hot food to eat. It’s so sad for those around me who have lost everything. I donated clothing, donated to the Red Cross, and plan on doing more once my power is restored and I can get gas. The way I see it, I can’t help everyone, but if everyone helps one person they will be in much better shape. Hope you all have a warm Sunday with your loved ones and be thankful for the little things we take for granted.

These biscotti must be one of the best I’ve ever made. They are incredibly delicious! Wow!
I just made these today, and after looking at the recipe I realized that it never says to put the pumpkin pie spice in the mix. Might need to add that to the directions 🙂 They still turned out amazing! I couldn't find any hazelnuts, so we used macadamia nuts instead, sooo good!
Whats a good replacement nut? I don't have hazelnuts on hand 🙂 Thanks for all the yummy recipes!
It is a rainy, cool day here in Nashville and was going through some recipes that were in the "get to" pile, and this sounded perfect. I had everything in my pantry so why not? I did find that I needed to reduce my oven temp towards the end, but these have a really great taste! They came out perfect for anyone who has not tried the recipe yet. To be honest, I have not used a recipe from Skinny Taste that has not come out as I expected. Many Thanks!
Awesome..keep posting more!
Gina- you've made me into a baker! I've become famous from your delicious banana and pumpkin bread recipes and have added my own twists along the way. I was hesitant to make biscotti because I always mess up dough. However your instructions were easy and as always the measurements precise. The flavors are SO amazing and delicious. I'll be making more at the request of some who've tasted it and love that I now have a base recipe for biscotti.
I just made these without the hazel nuts and they are delicious!! I have gone on a bit of a pumpkin kick this week after Thanksgiving and also re-dedicated myself to weight watchers… I have a massive love of cookies and coffee, together they will be great!
could you do this without the hazel nuts?! just pumpkin & white chocolate?! I love the flavor but not the texture of hazelnuts 🙂
This is SO good! I left mine soft since I'm not dunking it. I will make this again!
Another great recipe! I didn't have hazelnuts so used slivered almonds. Excellent!
Homemade biscotti! I am in love. Great recipe.
Really enjoyed trying this recipe out with my better half and my 11yr old daughter – pity other family members arrived just as they were due out of the oven and they were all taken – so didn't even get to try them :0( …. but not to worry I had fun !!
Hazelnuts, Pumpkin, & White Chocolate chips – my 3 most favorite things – all together in a skinny recipe?! You are amazing. Baking this as soon as I get home… and plan to make these & place them into mason jars to use as gifts. Glad you're okay; stay warm & safe, & bless you for helping others too.
I have tried most of your recipes and not a bad one in the bunch! I was "born and raised on hurricane's", so I know what you and all are going through. I think of you every day! Warmest regards,
very thoughtful of you to help all the people in need. its such a sad time. you have put all the amazing ingredient into a great treat. As i was trying to stay away from pumpkin, after too much of pumpkin stuff this year I am tempted to try this one out.
This recipe looks absolutely amazing! I can't wait to try it. I'm having my hubby go to the supermarket on his way home to get the only ingredients I'm missing – hazelnuts and white chocolate chips. Debating on trying it with dark chocolate chips instead. How do you think that would be?
The recipe calls for superfine sugar… Would that be the same as icing sugar or something altogether different? Thanks – can't wait to try these!!
Regular sugar should work, I put it in my magic bullet.
I am looking forward to trying this recipe. I am a huge fan of biscotti and it has been on my mind to find a pared-down version of it. Just read in the paper that there are still 1 million people without power in your area and that many are stranded without housing as well. Hoping for restoration of power and supplies and that everyone will be like-minded, reaching out to those in need in a generous way.
Yes, going to check on the senior center and see if they are ok today.
These sound great! Would be great for a home made gift. we are sending many hugs your way. It has been heartbreaking to see so much damage to so many. Stay strong and I love how you put…if we can just help one person…
Who wouldn't love these?
