This month the What’s Baking? challenge was biscotti.  I was excited about this challenge because I want to make biscotti as a homemade holiday gift this year and this was an awesome time to try out a new recipe.  I’ve been scouring recipes for biscotti, everything from cranberry nut to gingerbread and I finally decided on the gingerbread.

Gingerbread Biscotti is delicious when dunked in a hot beverage

I love biscotti because it’s pretty easy to make.  Yes it takes longer then a traditional cookie but you can make 2 trays at the same time.  Biscotti is unusual because you bake it in a loaf then take it out, cut it, and then bake the cookies on each side.  This makes for a crunchy holiday cookie that’s awesome when served with coffee, hot chocolate, or tea.  I love dunking mine in my morning coffee.

Gingerbread Biscotti

The gingerbread biscotti has all the delicious flavors from the ginger and molasses.   It’s baked in the loaf and I could smell the spices as it baked in the oven.   I cut the biscotti on a slight diagonal to give it the traditional look and baked it two more times.   The biscotti were dark from the molasses but smelled great.

Gingerbread Biscotti with White Chocolate Drizzle

To make them a little more festive I drizzled white chocolate over top of them once they had cooled.  You could also dunk them in white chocolate.  I plan on packaging 5 or 6 of them up in a cellophane bag, tying with a ribbon, and giving them in mugs along with hot chocolate.  It’ll be an awesome homemade gift this holiday season!

    1. Thank you for noticing! I just updated the recipe to put it in there. It’s funny, I’ve made these multiple times from this recipe and must just know how much molasses I put in! I hope you enjoy them.
