2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup chopped dried apples

1/2 cup chopped pecans  


1 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 to 3 teaspoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. STEP 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. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat at low speed until just mixed. (Dough will be sticky.) Stir in dried apples and pecans.

  3. STEP 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. STEP 4

    Bake 20-25 minutes or until logs are lightly browned and set. Cool 10 minutes on cookie sheet.

  5. STEP 5

    Carefully move logs to cutting surface. Using serrated knife, carefully cut logs diagonally into 1/2- to 1-inch slices. Place slices cut-side down onto other prepared cookie sheet. Continue baking 12-14 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. STEP 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.

Tip #1

When slicing the biscotti, go slowly and let the serrated knife do the work.
