Gather the ingredients - * Butter * Brown sugar * Pure maple syrup * Eggs * Vanilla extract * Flour * Baking powder * Pecans
Add the softened butter, light brown sugar, and maple syrup to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
Next, add the eggs and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
Add the flour and baking powder. Mix just until no large lumps of flour remain.
Add the pecans and gently fold them into the biscotti dough.
Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet and shape it into a log (10" long, 3" wide, and 1" tall).
Bake the biscotti for 25-28 minutes, or until the exterior is golden brown.
Remove the biscotti from the oven and carefully slice the log horizontally into 1" pieces - I recommend using a serrated bread knife.
Place the biscotti cut side down onto the baking sheet and return the pan to the oven for an additional 15 minutes, or until the biscotti are golden brown.
