  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a cookie sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oil, sugar, eggs, and molasses. In another bowl, combine flours, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg; mix into egg mixture to form a stiff dough.
  3. Divide dough in half, and shape each half into a roll the length of the cookie. Place rolls on 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.
  5. When cool enough to touch, cut into 1/2 inch thick diagonal slices. Place sliced biscotti on cookie sheet, and bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until toasted and crispy.

These were pretty darn good. With a couple changes, the texture came out just perfect; they weren't too crunchy or too soft as other reviewers have stated. First, I replaced the oil with butter....

These are decent but really need a little more kick! Next time I am going to add real ginger (either crystallized or fresh rather than ground) and some more cloves. Also, they benefited from som...

This is a good recipe after I changed a few things from what other reviewers have said and from other biscotti recipes I use. I used 6 T marjarine instead of oil. I omitted the whole wheat flo...

this may be the best biscotti I have ever had! I followed the recipe exactly (even the cooking time) and they came out perfectly. I don't know why some others had so much trouble. The dough w...

Nice crispy, crunchy, spicy little treats. I followed the recipe as written with the oil, because butter is not normally used in genuine Italian biscotti, which never have a buttery taste. Those...

Look out Starbucks! This recipe is fantastic. I've made a lot of biscotti in the past, so I decided to use butter instead of oil (1/3C). To get the gingerbread into the right size logs I wet my ...

Maybe it's me, but I always like a little bite to my gingerbread so I add a dash (or two in my case) of finely ground black pepper. This is one cookie that I always get recipe requests for. And...

I thought this was a great recipe. I did sub 1 stick of butter for the oil, Blackstrap molasses for regular molasses, used all wheat flour and rapidura suger instead of the white. I also follow...

GREAT taste! I did use all purpose flour in place of the whole wheat flour as I didn't have any. The only other change I made was to lower the temperature to 325 degrees for the second baking....

Delicious and easy! Fills the house with the smells of Christmas! I dipped them in white chocolate melts, and hubby loved them! I did reduce the baking time, as they were burning a bit on the...
