Gingerbread Biscotti Tips
What kind of molasses should you use to make gingerbread biscotti?
There are several different types of molasses on the market, and sometimes it can be confusing! Molasses ranges from strong and robust to blackstrap and light. The most common, which is unsulfured, carries the purest molasses flavor and is the best choice for this gingerbread biscotti. It will work harmoniously and not compete with the spices for the perfect gingerbread flavor. Learn more about the different kinds of molasses, like blackstrap and dark molasses
How do you store gingerbread biscotti?
Biscotti are best stored in an airtight, lidded container or tin to keep them tasting fresh and crisp. If desired, place pieces of waxed paper or parchment between the layers, especially if they are iced or drizzled with chocolate. Stored this way, they should last for up to 2 weeks. Without icing or chocolate drizzle, biscotti freezes very well in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months.
What else can you mix into gingerbread biscotti?
Try swapping out the cranberries for chopped, crystallized ginger (as ginger tends to be strong and intensely spicy, decrease the amount to a 1/4 cup or a few tablespoons). Candied orange peel would also work beautifully in these biscotti. You can leave out the almonds entirely, or swap in chopped, toasted hazelnuts. Mix up a simple royal icing
to drizzle over the gingerbread biscotti once it is completely cool. If you liked these biscotti, you'll love more of our gingerbread recipes
