Gingerbread Biscotti

Are you ready for the season of Gingerbread?

Gingerbread Biscotti @createdbydiane

Oh I’m getting so excited for all the Christmas Baking that is to come this year.

I just love Gingerbread and finally made Gingerbread Biscotti….and Oh how wonderful the kitchen smelled with these in the oven.

I could hardly wait for them to cool,

but then came the icing….

mmmm….and then they were even better.

Of course I had a few while they were warm, it is WAY to hard to wait for them all to cool and the ends don’t count do they!

Here are some other Gingerbread items I’ve made that I’m looking forward to making again this year.

Biscotti is a twice baked firm cookie,

the dough is easy to work with, it can be shaped into long or short logs.

I baked the biscotti in two smaller loaves instead of one large one. I kind of like them small, means I can have a whole bunch of them that way.

First Bake on Gingerbread Biscotti @createdbydiane


Use a serrated knife to slice them, it will reduce the chance of them breaking apart.


Gingerbread Biscotti with Gingerbread Icing @createdbydiane

When the biscotti are all cool, dip the top edges into the icing.

Not going to lie, the ICING is FABULOUS!

These are perfect cookies for giving as gifts,they wrap nicely and aren’t too fragile. That is they are perfect for giving if you don’t EAT them all!

    Gingerbread biscotti are a holiday tradition at my house, but my version is just plain…. and your frosting looks like just the thing to take them to the next level. (Also, love the idea of making smaller ones so you can eat more and not feel guilty, Genius!)
