Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 c Flour
  • 1 1/4 c Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1/4 tsp Allspice
  • 1 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/8 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 c Butter softened
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Molasses
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 c White Chocolate optional, for dipping/drizzle

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking sheets.
  2. In your mixer cream together butter with sugar.
  3. In a small bowl whisk your eggs and molasses then add to butter mixture with vanilla and combine.
  4. In a medium bowl sift together your dry ingredients and then add slowly to your wet mixture (it will become a thick batter).
  5. Form into logs (10"x 2" approx) and bake for 20-23 minutes (until slightly firm to the touch but NOT hard, should have a "spring" to it)
  6. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes before cutting into 1" stripes (see photos)
  7. Place face down on baking sheet and bake for additional 6, flip and repeat for 6 minutes (they should be slightly golden)
  8. Allow to cool completely before adding a chocolate drizzle/dip if you prefer!

Recipe Notes

If you like your biscotti REALLY crunchy you can add 1-2 minutes per side when they are cooking face down, if you prefer it a little softer you can do it for less time. Our biscotti is cooked to be a perfect addition to a cup of coffee or tea!
