Have you noticed I share biscotti recipes? By the way, I love these cookies I share the recipes in hopes you will enjoy these too.

Now, let’s begin making the best gingerbread biscotti with white chocolate. By the way, white chocolate and these gingerbread cookies is a great combination. Besides, look how pretty the white chocolate is against the color of the gingerbread.

Below I Share Another Biscotti Recipe The Equipment Needed to Make These Recipes

Equipment Needed:

  • electric mixer
  • rubber spatula
  • parchment paper
  • cookie sheets
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • double boiler or Wilton chocolate melt machine

Step 1

Preheat the oven at 350

Here, whisk flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in a medium size bowl to combine well to add air for the gingerbread biscotti.

Step 2

In the meantime, mix the soften butter, sugar and packed brown sugar until well combined. Don’t rush this process. By the way, this step can take 5 minutes or so. To achieve a great gingerbread biscotti or cookie this step is important. Therefore make sure it’s smooth.

Step 3

It’s especially important to scrape the sides of the bowl and add the eggs until well combined into the gingerbread cookies.

Step 4

Next, add the molasses until well combined.

Now, add the flour slowly at low speed to combine until well.. Incidentally, the gingerbread biscotti dough will be thick.

Shaping The Biscotti Dough Into Logs Before Baking

Step 5

Here, divide the gingerbread biscotti dough in half and shape each half into 12″ log on the parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Place the gingerbread biscotti logs 3″ apart and flatten slightly. Damp finger tips work best for this process.

Baking the Gingerbread Cookies Before We Can Add The White Chocolate

Step 6

Now, bake the biscotti 22 – 25 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and cool for 15 minutes on the cookie sheet. Reduce the oven temperature to 325.

It’s particularly important, to carefully cut the gingerbread biscotti into 1/2 diagonal slices with a serrated knife. Place cut side down on and return to the oven and bake 9 more minutes. Turn slices again and bake for 5-7 more minutes. Cool completely.

Melt good quality white chocolate. Place waxed paper under a cookie cooling rack and drizzle the gingerbread biscotti with the white chocolate.

    How the heck do you divide and shape something that is so sticky? If I try to manipulate it the parchment paper sticks to it. i used my stand mixer with paddle, on low. My dough looks like your picture but it's impossible to work with. I wrapped it up in parchment and put it in the refrigerator; maybe that will help.
