Gingerbread Biscotti

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 3/4 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1/3 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Combine the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat until combined and fluffy. Add the eggs, molasses, and vanilla extract.
  3. Whisk together the flours, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt in a separate bowl. Mix into your wet ingredients until fully incorporated.
  4. Divide your dough into two equal parts. Shape each piece into a roll slightly shorter than the tray. Press down to 1/2 inch thickness. Bake for 25 minutes.
  5. Let the cookies cool 15 minutes. Use a sharp knife to slice 1/2 inch pieces and place flat onto your tray.
  6. Bake 10 minutes on each side at 325 degrees.
