Super easy to mix up and bake – be ready to make a batch to give away! Well folks, it’s here. The first pumpkin recipe of the season – waahoo!! Those of you who have been a follower of Mostly Homemade Mom for even a little while know how excited this makes me! In fact just yesterday when I was out shopping, I picked up a pair of fall mums that are just beginning to bloom. It’s by far my favorite time of the year! Not only do I absolutely love fall, you all know how much I adore my morning coffee. It’s sacred to me. Now that school has started, I’ve been trying to keep the boys on a fairly strict schedule for bedtime to give them enough rest for the full day of school they have ahead of them. The only problem is that I’m not doing it myself! I stay up to late getting things done, or just chillin’ with the husband, and in the mornings I simply can’t function without my coffee. Enter this magnificent machine. I whipped up a batch of this homemade Pumpkin Biscotti, studded with chocolate chips and a milk chocolate drizzle, along with a latte macchiato from this incredible Lattissima Pro from De’Longhi. This coffee machine uses Nespresso pods, which makes creating premium, convenient, coffee-house level drinks incredibly quick and easy – with one touch. If you haven’t already, put this amazing cappuccino maker on your Christmas list! This Pumpkin Biscotti uses delicious pumpkin quick bread mix to have you baking these treats up in a matter of mere minutes. My boys even gobbled these up as an after-school treat and asked me to sneak a small piece in their lunch boxes the next day! What a wonderful way to welcome fall!

I love how one batch makes a lot of cookies, so I’m planning on making up some gifts for the holidays with some biscotti, a cute coffee mug, and some great coffee as well. I know I’d love a gift like that! This Lattissima Pro looks absolutely incredible on my coffee station table with espresso mugs and a large jar filled with these Pumpkin Biscotti cookies! Honestly though, the sleek look does not even compare to how in love I am with the milk carafe and frother that comes with the machine. You fill the milk frother with skim milk and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it in the morning. Then just drop in the Nespresso pod of your choice and select which type of brew you want on the touch screen. You can choose from ristretto, espresso, lungo, cappuccino, latte, hot milk, and hot water. My favorite feature is that it self cleans the milk frother with just a push of the button – absolutely brilliant! The De’Longhi Lattissima Pro is the perfect addition to your kitchen counter. Be sure to whip up a batch of these delicious Pumpkin Biscotti to go along with it – such a fun way to enjoy coffee and dessert with guests this fall!
