The Best Pecan Biscotti with Chocolate and Raisins

Crunchy, raisin and chocolate studded Pecan Biscotti

Whisk your dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the pecans (leaving some aside for the next step!), chocolate and raisins and stir to coat with flour.

step 1

Put the extra pecans and sugar into a food processor or blender and process to grind the nuts finely.

step 2

Transfer the pecan sugar mixture to a separate bowl. Combine with brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla, whole eggs, and egg yolk. Whisk thoroughly and then pour into the bowl of dry ingredients.

step 3

Place the pecan biscotti dough onto a generously floured surface. Gently knead it a few times to bring it together.

step 4

Divide the biscotti dough in half and shape each portion into a log. Put the logs onto a parchment lined baking sheet with a gap of about 2 inches between them.

step 5

Lightly beat egg white and brush it over the tops of the loaves, then sprinkle generously with extra granulated or turbinado sugar.

step 6


Bake the pecan biscotti loaves until they’re cooked through and ends are just starting to brown.

step 7

Let the biscotti cool on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes. Then slice.

step 8

Arrange pecan biscotti slices on the lined baking sheet. Bake again until dry and firm.

step 9

Pecan biscotti makes a beautiful Christmas food gift! It'll keep for a few weeks if well sealed, or can be frozen for longer storage.
