Gingerbread Biscotti made with Golden Barrel Supreme Baking MolassesWith school fully back in swing, I’m all ready for fall (even though the temps still tell me otherwise). And with the onset of fall, football, and (hopefully) crisper weather in the air, my baking is ready for some heartier flavors as well. This is the time of year to pull out spices such as ginger, cinnamon, and cloves as well as that jar of molasses that’s been hanging out in the back of your pantry. And I’ve got the perfect recipe in which to try all those wonderful fall-like flavors: gingerbread biscotti.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oil, sugar, eggs, and molasses. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Slowly add dry ingredients into egg mixture, adding a little at a time, until everything is incorporated. Don't overmix. Dough will be thick.
  3. Divide dough in half, and shape each half into a roll on greased cookie sheet, and pat down to flatten the dough to 1/2 inch thickness.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, and set aside to cool slightly.
  5. When cool enough to touch, cut into 1/2 inch thick diagonal slices. Place sliced biscotti on its side on the cookie sheet, and bake an additional 5-7 minutes per side, or until toasted and crispy.
  6. Melt white chocolate chips in double boiler over stove top (or use microwave). Add coconut oil and stir until melted. Dip flat bottoms of biscotti in chocolate and drizzle on top. Set on waxed paper until cool and chocolate is firm.
