Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Yes, another pumpkin recipe.  But, oh boy, are these delicious!  A very nice friend said these are "Starbucks-worthy" if that gives you any clue about how amazing they are!

1 1/2c packed brown sugar
1 stick butter, room temperature
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c pumpkin puree
3c flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2c chocolate chips
1c semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour a baking sheet.  Cream together butter, sugar, and eggs in a large mixing bowl.  Mix in vanilla and pumpkin puree.  Add dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.  Fold in both types of chocolate chips.  Your dough will look and feel like chocolate chip cookie dough - fairly sticky.  Shape into 3 log-looking shapes on the baking sheet.  (These will not expand too much, so try to get them the width you would like your biscotti to be).  Bake for 30 minutes, reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake for 30 minutes more.  Remove from oven and slice into biscotti.  Return the slices to the baking sheet and bake 10 more minutes.  Let cool before serving.  Enjoy!
