Pecan and Silan Biscotti

Pecan and Silan Biscotti

I enjoy baking biscotti when the weather starts cooling down because it goes perfect with that afternoon coffee that we all wait for when we start feeling tired by midday. I used silan (date syrup) to reduce to amount of sugar but keep the sweetness to this delicate afternoon treat. Featuring pecans and orange, this is the perfect biscotti!
