Ingredients

Biscotti

1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup
sugar
1/2 cup
firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon
ground nutmeg
2
large Land O Lakes® Eggs
2 teaspoons
vanilla
2 1/4 cups
all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons
baking powder
1/4 teaspoon
salt
1 cup
chopped dried apples
3/4 cup
chopped pecans*

Glaze

1 cup
powdered sugar
3 tablespoons
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 tablespoons
caramel ice cream topping
1 teaspoon
vanilla
2 to 3 teaspoons
milk
 
*Substitute your favorite nut.

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Combine 1/2 cup butter, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until just mixed. (Dough will be sticky.) Stir in dried apples and pecans.
  3. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape each half into 12-inch log. Place logs, 3 inches apart, onto 1 prepared cookie sheet. Flatten each log to 2 inches wide.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until logs are lightly browned and set. Cool 15 minutes on cookie sheet.
  5. Carefully move logs to cutting surface. Using serrated knife, cut logs diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Place slices cut-side down onto other prepared cookie sheet. Continue baking for 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until edges are lightly browned on both sides. Remove from cookie sheet to wire cooling rack placed over waxed paper; cool completely.
  6. Combine powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons butter, caramel topping and 1 teaspoon vanilla in medium bowl; mix well. Add enough milk for desired glazing consistency. Drizzle glaze over 1 side of each biscotti.
  7. *Substitute your favorite nut.

These were very easy to make. The texture of the apple gave this biscotti a little different makeup than other biscotti. I didn't have any caramel topping for the icing this time, but plan to use it in the future. A nice fall treat.
