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 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: Addin the Molasses

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

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

Step 5: Dividing and Shaping the Logs

Here, divide the spiced 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 fingertips work best for this process.

Step 6: Baking and Drizzling the Chocolate

Now, bake the biscotti 22 – 25 minutes. Remove the sweets 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 these spicy biscotti into 1/2 diagonal slices with a serrated knife. Place the cut side of the cookie down 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 spicy gingerbread biscotti with the white chocolate.
