Ginger Cinnamon Biscotti



      Here goes another take on an Italian cookie classic. This time I thought why not attempt to create the flavor of the Christmas season? So here goes; Ginger Cinnamon Biscotti.
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped candied ginger
  • 1/2 tbs cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar
  • Milk
  • Green candy sprinkles

1. In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

2. In a mixing bowl cream the sugar and butter together.

3. Slowly mix in the eggs one at a time.

4. Mix in the chopped ginger and cinnamon.

5. Now mix in the flour mixture in batches until well incorporated.

6. On a tin foil lined baking sheet form the dough into a long 1/2 inch rectangle.

7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes until the edges are browned.

8. Let cool for 30 minutes, then slice at an angle into 1/2 inch thick cookies.

9. Bake again for another 10 minutes laid out on the same baking sheet.

10. Let cool. Mix powdered sugar and milk to make a thick icing. Drizzle over half each cookie and sprinkle with the green candy sprinkles.
These were so good and tasted just like what you would think Christmas would taste like. Perfect spiciness from the ginger and sweet warmth from the cinnamon.
