Gingerbread Biscotti:

Yes, my friends, I’m back with another biscotti recipe. On today’s menu, it’s Gingerbread Biscotti.

If you’re following along closely, you might remember that last week I shared these Hazelnut and Almond Biscotti. I loved them so much that they were gone within a week. No, I didn’t eat all of them. I shared the Hazelnut and Almond Biscotti with friends and family. They loved them as much as I did!

The biscotti was such a hit that I wanted to make more of it but this time I would do it with a Christmas twist. Naturally, my mind went to gingerbread, so that’s exactly what I did.

The recipe for these Gingerbread Biscotti is similar to my previous recipe with just a few additions and substitutions. To create that classic gingerbread flavor I added molasses, brown sugar, and spices: ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

The resulting biscotti is holiday perfection. To complete the look, I dipped half of them into melted white chocolate and then topped them with some festive sprinkles. The little gingerbread people sprinkles might be my favorite. You can find the gingerbread people sprinkles HERE and the red, green, and white sprinkles HERE.

How to Make Gingerbread Biscotti:

Begin by preheating your oven to 320 degrees F. Line two baking pans with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. I’ve provided a full list of the ingredients and detailed recipe instructions in a printable recipe card below.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and molasses until thickened: about 4-5 minutes. At low speed, add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.

Wet your hands, and form the dough into 2 equally sized logs. They should be roughly 8 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 3/4 of an inch tall. Place one log on the center of each baking pan.

Bake for 25 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through.

Remove these from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes.

After the logs have begun to cool but are still warm, use a serrated knife to slice the cookies about 3/4 inch wide.

Place the cookies, standing up, onto a baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

While the cookies cool, melt the white chocolate and vegetable shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals stirring between until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Place a piece of wax paper on your work surface.

Working in batches of 4-5, dip half of the biscotti into the white chocolate and allow any excess to drip off. (Depending on the size of your bowl, you may need to use a spoon or spatula to help you coat the biscotti.) Add the sprinkles* to the white chocolate, then set onto the wax paper.

Allow the chocolate to set completely, then pack and store in an airtight container.

That is it my friends. Now go brew yourself a cup of coffee or tea and indulge in one of these delicious Gingerbread Biscotti. They are perfect for the season.
