Where you love pumpkin, other winter squash works perfectly! Butternut Squash isn’t just for soup (although it is a delicious way to use it). It adds gorgeous color, flavor and moisture to this festive biscotti. It provides a hint of natural sweetness that fits perfectly with the crunch of the walnuts.Not your nonna's #biscotti!

What Does Biscotti Mean?
Biscotti literally means “twice baked”. If you’ve never made it before, biscotti gets its extra crispy goodness from being baked first in a flattened loaf and then cut into strips and baked again.#Foodfact: #biscotti means baked twice!
