  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temp
  • 1/4 cup real molasses
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
  • Optional: Melted white chocolate for drizzling


  • Preheat oven to 375F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, sugar, eggs, and molasses, combining well. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Whisk dry ingredients together to incorporate. Mix dry ingredients together with butter mixture, and continue to work it until thick dough forms.
  • Divide dough in half. Shape each half into logs about 10x3 inches. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Pat each log down to about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven (still, keep the oven on,) and allow it to cool enough to handle.
  • Using a sharp bread knife, cut each log into 1/2 inch thick diagonal slices. Place each sliced biscotti on its side, and bake about 7-8 minutes. Turn each cookie over and bake another 7-8 minute or until cookies feel dry and are turning crispy.
  • Let cool completely at room temp. If desired, drizzle with melted white chocolate or your choice of icing.
