Gingerbread Biscotti – The Girl Creative Bakes!

W

 ell I’ve baked up a storm in my little kitchen a few weeks ago  in anticipation of a yearly ministry conference being held at my church. It was last month. As a result, I’ve stockpiled around five recipes to share with you over the next week or so. The first being this Gingerbread Biscotti recipe.

T

he Gingerbread Biscotti speak the true language of Autumn, with deep spicy flavors mixed into the dough.  Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger… they’re all in there.  My husband loves gingerbread – he also loves a good biscotti. He now enjoys the way his favored cookie reshapes into a dip-able stick with a glass of milk for a late-night snack.  He’s not much of a tea/coffee drinker, so he goes for the milk.  The scent in my home while these baked was reminiscent of Christmas to me.

t any rate, this is my favorite biscotti recipe for many reasons, the best one being the dough is SO easy to handle.  You’ll have the logs shaped in less than a few minutes flat as the dough is hardly sticky.  It slices easily after the first bake, biscotti bake 1-3 times, and if you follow the first baking time, your biscotti should have a slight ‘give’ in the center.  Go for the second bake time if you like superior crunch along-side your coffee. This is the simplest biscotti recipe I’ve posted to date.  If you’re a beginner baker and want to try these Italian-born desserts, start with this one.

    awww this brought back such fond memories of my dad baking biscotti. I love gingerbread but have never tried a biscotti. I think I am afraid of it going too hard before I can slice into strips but this has given me the confidence to try it this year instead of my usual gingerbread cookies for Christmas!

    I am in the middle of this recipe and it won’t stick together.. its prettty well dry! Not sure what’s wrong. I went to some other gingerbread biscotti recipes sites, and there always seems to be a bit of oil or butter in their recipe. Did you forget to put that in or did I do something wrong? Not sure what to do now…
