Ingredients

  • 7 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 5 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1-1/4 cups white baking chips
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons shortening
  • Red Hots

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, molasses and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flours, spices, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in crystallized ginger.
Divide dough in half. On an ungreased baking sheet, shape each half into a 14x2-in. rectangle. Bake 20-25 minutes or until firm to the touch.
Cool on pans on wire racks until cool enough to handle. Transfer baked rectangles to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, cut diagonally into 1/2-in. slices. Place upright 1-in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a microwave, melt baking chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over biscotti. Decorate with Red Hots. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
