Fresh ginger delivers a bit of spice to this traditional Italian cookie. Gingerbread Biscotti are perfect with a warm cup of joe, spiced cider, or hot chocolate.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Beat butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add sugars, beating well. Beat in eggs.

Step 2

Combine flour and next 5 ingredients; add to butter mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Stir in almonds and crystallized ginger.

Step 3

Divide dough in half. Using floured hands, shape each portion into a log 3 inches wide and 1 inch high. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Step 4

Bake 25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet; remove to a wire rack, and set aside until cool to the touch. Reduce oven temperature to 325°.

Step 5

Cut each log crosswise into 1/2-inch slices with a serrated knife. Place slices on ungreased cookie sheets.

Step 6

Bake 7 minutes; turn cookies over, and bake 7 more minutes. Cool completely on wire racks.

Step 7

Dip ends of biscotti in melted white chocolate. Place biscotti on wax paper until chocolate hardens.
