What’s fall without another pumpkin recipe?  Since making biscotti for the first time last December, I’ve been thinking about trying other recipes but not until I made pumpkin scones recently did I really think about make pumpkin biscotti.  I probably could have used one of the few (sarcasm) pumpkin biscotti recipes that pop up on a Google search but no, I had an idea in my head that needed to be executed. I decided to adapt Dorie Greenspan’s Lenox Almond Biscotti into some pumpkin spice biscotti because I really loved the idea of the crunchy texture of cornmeal with the sweet and savory pumpkin spice flavor…it just sounded perfect…and frankly, it was! There was nothing better than heating up one of these lovelies to go alongside a mug of hot spiced apple cider on a rainy November afternoon.  Nothing.
