Ingredients

Topping:

  • 10 ounces about 1 1/4 cups white chocolate baking wafers
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening Crisco
  • sprinkles

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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 shorting 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.
