Let’s make gingerbread biscotti with white chocolate drizzle. This is one of my favorite gingerbread recipes, especially for Christmas!

Do you enjoy biscotti recipes? I especially love all homemade biscotti with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate with mini marshmallows or any hot drink.

Basically, I love them all, chocolate biscotti, almond biscotti, and dark chocolate anything. I think the one thing that I enjoy the most is biscotti cookies have the best crunchy texture and are easy to make especially during this busy time of year.

These biscotti are my favorite because they are so easy to make and are perfect for the holiday season.

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

Below I Share Another Recipe and The Equipment Needed to Make These Desserts

Incidentally, if you enjoy baking, this easy recipe is so easy and is also fantastic. 

Equipment Needed:

  • electric stand or hand mixer
  • rubber spatula
  • parchment-lined baking sheet
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • double boiler or Wilton chocolate melt machine
  • sharp serrated knife
  • wire rack

Step 1: Preheating the Oven and Combine the Dry Ingredients

Preheat the oven at 350

Here, in a medium bowl whisk all-purpose flour or measure to measure gluten-free flour, baking powder, ground ginger, and other warm spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. This adds air to the gingerbread biscotti recipe and makes for a lighter cookie.

Step 2: Combining the Sugars and Butter Together

In the meantime, in a large bowl mix the softened butter, sugar, and packed brown sugar until well combined. Mix this at medium speed. Don’t rush this process. This step can take 5 minutes or so. To achieve a great gingerbread biscotti or cookie this step is important.

Step 3: Making Sure to Scrape the Sides of the Bowl

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

Tip: It’s important to scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all the ingredients are combined well. As a rule, I scrape the sides after every step. I understand some say this isn’t necessary with stand mixers. But trust me and take the time to do this step.

Step 4: Adding the Molasses

Next, add the molasses until well combined. Don’t you love the smell and taste molasses adds? I love it, especially for this crispy treat!

Now, add the flour slowly at low speed to combine well. Incidentally, this is a stiff dough and a bit sticky.

Step 5: Dividing and Shaping the Logs

Here, divide the dough in half and shape each half into thick dough forms.

Next, shape a 12″ log on the prepared baking sheet. Place the gingerbread biscotti logs 3″ apart and shape them into a flat log. Wet hands work best for this process.

Step 6: Baking and Drizzling the Chocolate

Now, to bake the gingerbread, the first time bake biscotti for 22 – 25 minutes. Remove them from the oven and cool for 15 minutes on the baking pan. Reduce the oven temperature to 325.

It’s particularly important, to carefully cut these biscotti into 1/2 thick diagonal slices with a serrated knife. Next, place slices cut side down and return them to the oven for the second bake for 9 more minutes. Turn slices again and bake for 5-7 more minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool completely on a wire rack.

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