If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect hostess gift, holiday party favor, or you just want some festive cookies that keep very well, here are these delectable gingerbread biscotti.

Dunking perfection.  Coffee lovers need no further explanation.

I have long been making my usual Double Chocolate Biscotti for holiday gift-giving and for my own coffee dunking bliss. But this year, I wanted to try out these gingerbread biscotti.  Wowzers!

Gingerbread equals holidays. And since I’ve already made loads of these super chewy and soft Chewy Soft Ginger Cookies, it was time to let the cookie pendulum swing to the other side – the crisp side…

Gingerbread Biscotti are Crispy and Crunchy

I know.  If you read any of my cookie posts, it’s no secret that I’m weak in the knees for chewy and soft cookies.

But.  If any cookie must be crispy and crunchy, it’s name has to be Biscotti.  Biscotti were born to be crispy, so they can hold up to a phenomenal dunking party with hot cocoa or coffee.

One dunk into your favorite morning (or evening) joe, and these Gingerbread Biscotti are ready to melt in your mouth.  It literally and immediately melts into your sweet tooth, one happy dunk after another.

These Crispy Biscotti are Great for Gift Giving

Biscotti are one of my favorite treats to give away, because they keep…forever?   At least they keep well for several weeks, and that might as well be forever in cookie-years.

These Gingerbread Biscotti are perfectly crisp, flavorful, and they dunk like magic.

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, sugar, eggs, and molasses, combining well. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Whisk dry ingredients together to incorporate. Mix dry ingredients together with butter mixture, and continue to work it until a thick dough forms.
  • Divide dough in half. Shape each half into logs about 12×3 inches. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Pat each log down to about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven (still keep oven on,) and allow it to cool enough to handle.
  • Using a sharp bread knife, cut each log into 3/4 inch thick diagonal slices. Place each sliced biscotti on its side, and bake about 7-8 minutes. Turn each cookie over and bake another 7-8 minutes or until cookies feel dry and are turning crispy.
  • Let cool completely to room temp. If desired, drizzle with melted white chocolate or your choice of icing.

    I made these this week and dipped/drizzled with white chocolate. They are so yummy and beautiful that we are giving them as gifts!

    I really like nuts in my biscotti. Have you made the gingerbread biscotti with nuts before? How much would you recommend putting in?

      • chewoutloud

      Hi, Lisa! Yes, I’ve used nuts in biscotti before – really yummy! This one would be great with slivered almonds or chopped pecans. I’d recommend about 1/2 cup to start with 🙂 Enjoy and happy holidays!

    These were absolutely perfect! Love all the spice and the white chocolate drizzle.
