Gingerbread Biscotti

Every year about this time, I go into mad biscotti making mode. I have found biscotti make perfect little gifts for all kinds of people (teachers, bus drivers etc.) as well as being a wonderful addition to other gifts or gift baskets.

I pick up pretty, festive cello bags at the Bulk Barn, make several kinds of biscotti and pack them up into packages with 5 or 6 biscotti in each, tied with a pretty ribbon and tag describing what kind they are. I keep the little packages in a basket and grab one when I need a little something for someone. Biscotti are perfect for this as they have such a long shelf life (up to a month!) and they are sturdy enough that they don’t break in transit.

Even if you’re not looking to make some for gifts, you might just like to make up a batch just to have around over the holidays. These are the perfect biscotti for the season! In fact, I think these are my new favourite biscotti! The flavours are wonderful (perfectly spiced) and you can bake them as soft or crispy as you like and they taste great either way.

  1. So glad you enjoyed them, Erin. Good choice on the icing sugar glaze. It’s my favourite ;) You can either dip the bottom or do a thin drizzle on top. Let dry and it will stand up well (won’t schmuck in transit)
    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas as well, Erin!!

  2. I just made them! They are absolutely delicious. I am going to give most of them away so I don’t eat them. I think I’m going to do the icing sugar glaze on them to finish them off. Merry Christmas Jen! Hope you have a lovely time with your family and friends. :)

  3. Gingerbread flavours in biscotti sound fantastic! And so festive. These look delicious!

  4. I highly recommend them, Erin. I couldn’t stop eating them ;)
