Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Beat softened butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat one egg into butter mixture until completely blended, then beat in remaining egg, 1/2 cup maple syrup, and maple extract. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture just until dough forms; fold in walnuts until just combined.

  • Divide dough in half. Shape each portion of dough into a log the length of a baking sheet, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each log into a rectangle 3 inches wide and 1-inch tall.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned on the bottom and slightly cracked on top, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven to cool for 15 minutes, but leave oven on.

  • Slice logs diagonally into 1/2-inch thick slices, and lay slices on their sides on the baking sheet.

  • Bake biscotti in the preheated oven until lightly browned and crisp on the outside, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven; cool for a few minutes.

  • Stir together 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1/4 cup maple syrup in a bowl. Stir confectioners' sugar into mixture gradually until smooth. Drizzle maple glaze lightly with a spoon over warm biscotti.

This was my first time making biscotti and it seems to have turned out well. I followed the recipe and directions as written. I personally need to flatten out my dough better next time, but I look forward to making this again. The icing is amazing! Read More

Good recipe but I would suggest cooking it longer the second time to dry it out more. Glaze tasted lovely did slightly less icing sugar than suggested. Read More

My mother because of health problems no longer cooks. So it is up to me to keep her in Biscotti. I have made lots of biscotti most of my own design. This is a very nice one to make. I did skip the glaze because of her diet concerns. Also I used a sugar substitute. She loved it and that is all that matters. I am not a fan of Biscotti but it smelled great to me. Read More

I love biscotti and this is a nice variation. I used pure Grade B maple syrup to get the ultimate maple flavor. I increase the baking time in the slices turning them over after eight minutes and baking them an additional eight minutes for a crunchier biscotti. Read More

This recipe is going into my collection of the best biscotti recipes I've ever tried. The only change I made was substituting pecans for walnuts. There ended up being a lot of glaze so I'll cut down on that next time as these cookies are excellent on their own. Read More

Delicious recipe but was so crumbly that i had a hard time keeping it together during slicing after the first bake. I believe it's the butter since I never had this problem with biscotti that were made without fat or with olive oil. Read More

Yum! I made this with pecans instead of walnuts (personal preference) & thought it was great! No issue with the texture being too crumbly/dry. Will def make again. Read More

I enjoyed these cookies but I added maple extract to the glaze I love a stronger taste of maple. Read More
