» Baking Gingerbread Biscotti
- Heat oven to 350°F/175C.
- Line/grease 2 baking trays and set aside.
- To a large bowl add together oil, sugar, eggs, and molasses.
- Beat at medium speed, until well mixed.
- Add ginger, clove, cinnamon, pepper, baking powder, vanilla extract, baking soda, and flour.
- Mix with a spatula to form a stiff dough.
- Add almonds and mix well to combine.
- Divide dough in half; place halves on lined/greased trays.
- Using lightly floured hands, shape each portion into a flat log which is 12-inch high and 8-inch wide. Thickness should be 1/2 inch.
- Bake 22-25 minutes or until lightly browned and tops are slightly cracked. Remove from oven, and set aside to cool.
- When cool enough to touch, cut into 1/2 inch thick diagonal slices.
- Place slices, cut sides down, on a baking sheet, and bake an additional 7 minutes on each side, or until toasted and crispy.
- Remove from pan, and cool completely on a wire rack. Drizzle with melted white chocolate.
- Let them set at room temperature until chocolate drizzle hardens.
- They also taste wonderful when they are plain, but you can surely add some texture by adding any of your favorite nuts or chocolate to them.
- You can add any of your favorite nuts or chocolate to them, but I like my gingerbread biscotti plain with gingerbread cookie frosting drizzled over the top.
- I have added cloves to this recipe, but if you don?t have cloves, you can also substitute cloves with the same amount of allspice.
- This recipe only makes 24 biscotti, but you can surely double the recipe if you are planning to bake them as a holiday gift.
- These can be served as a midday snack, or even a light after meal dessert.
