Delicious, crunchy Biscotti with Maple and Walnuts. Grab your coffee and get dunking!



  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons maple flavoring
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup walnuts, chopped


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon maple flavoring
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 Tablespoons walnuts, chopped


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until combined. Beat in eggs and maple flavoring.
  2. Add flour and baking powder, beating until fully combined. Fold in chopped walnuts.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop dough onto parchment, and using fingertips pat dough to a 13inch x 4inch rectangle. Dip fingers in flour to keep dough from sticking.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove and cool ten minutes. Slice into ¾-1inch slices. Lay each slice on it's side and separate on the parchment. Return to oven and bake 10 minutes. Flip biscotti and bake an additional 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely before applying glaze.
  5. For the glaze, whisk sugar with maple and milk until smooth. Spread onto the tops of each biscotti and sprinkle immediately with walnuts. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

Comments & Reviews

  1. Biscotti seems so much more elegant than regular cookies. Maple and walnut are such great flavors! Yum!

  2. Biscotti SHOULD be just as popular as brownies, cakes, etc. because biscotti is awesome! 🙂 Love this recipe and looking forward to more biscotti creations 🙂

  3. Aimee, this biscotti recipe of yours rocks! I love how you always just keep it real… and that you share this love of biscotti with all of us… because, now I have become a lover of biscotti, too!

    1. Whoohoo!! Maybe if I make a peanut butter and chocolate biscotti, then I could win everyone over 🙂

  4. That sounds like a great challenge, we are pack rats too even though we’ve gotten better in the last few years but it seems like our stuff still keeps accumulating more and more.
    I love biscotti and this maple walnut version looks amazing Aimee – can’t get over how good the glaze looks – pinning 🙂

  5. Ordinarily, I’m not a huge Biscotti fan, but these? I can’t wait to try them. The glaze looks amazing! Love*love*love!

  6. I’m glad your goal is to make biscotti once a month. I love biscotti and I’d probably choose it over a brownie. This looks scrumptious!

    1. Maple flavoring is much more concentrated than maple syrup. You would need a whole lot more syrup to achieve the same taste. Most grocery chains carry the maple flavoring right next to the vanilla extract. Plus, then you can come back and make all my other great maple treats 🙂

  7. You do always have the best biscottuy recipes! Every time I think you can’t top a flavor combo, you do! I really like the warm flavors in this – maple and walnut make me think cozy (perfect for morning coffee!)

  8. Wow 40 bags is a lot… But I feel like I should be doing something similar… Especially before I move!

    I’ve never made my own biscotti, but I have to admit that it would make my morning coffee even better 🙂

  9. I read about that challenge. I need to do it. We are pack rats – well I am. 🙂 We’re doing a garage sale in a month or two and our store room is FULL.

    These are amazing biscotti – I love all your recipes. Thanks for the link love!

    1. After this I think I will be doing a garage sale too! And I hate doing garage sales, hehe.

  10. Your biscotti makes me wish I liked coffee a bit more! I WANT to be a coffee lover, but seriously. It tastes like garbage, Aimee.
