Ingredients

Biscotti

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon ground ginger

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

3 tablespoons mild molasses

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips, if desired

Coating

6 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), chopped

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a large cookie sheet; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, ginger, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add eggs; continue beating until well mixed. Add molasses; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in mini chocolate chips, if desired.

  3. STEP 3

    Divide dough in half. Shape each half into 12-inch log on lightly floured surface. Place logs 3 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet. Flatten logs slightly.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 22-25 minutes or until lightly browned and tops are slightly cracked. Remove from oven; cool 15 minutes on cookie sheet.

  5. STEP 5

    Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

  6. STEP 6

    Carefully place logs onto cutting surface. Cut into 1/2-inch diagonal slices with serrated knife. Place, cut-side down, onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  7. STEP 7

    Return to oven. Bake 9 minutes; turn slices. Continue baking 5-7 minutes or until cookies are dry and crisp. Cool completely.

  8. STEP 8

    Place candy coating into small bowl. Microwave 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted and smooth. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.

  9. STEP 9

    Place cookies onto waxed paper; drizzle with melted candy coating. Let set at room temperature until coating is firm.

Tip #1

- Line cookie sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

Tip #2

- Use dark molasses, if you prefer a more intense flavor.

This recipe is excellent! I love making biscotti and have tried Starbucks gingerbread biscotti in their store so I thought I'd try out a gingerbread recipe. This is MUCH better than Starbucks! I stirred in the crystallized ginger instead of chocolate chips and it was outstanding! I also used someone's suggestion of drizzling melting cinnamon chips. The cookies are pretty and very delicious! I can't wait until I share them with my family on Christmas Eve! I'll use this recipe every Christmas from now on.

This was my first attempt at biscotti. They were a huge hit! We even received a box of biscotti from a local bakery and liked this better! I used Ghirardelli white chocolate candy melts for the glaze which worked well. It is a new holiday tradition in my home.
