Gingerbread Biscott

What better time for gingerbread biscotti? The holiday season baking is well upon us now and this recipe offers up a great treat for this time of the year.

We have often chocolate dipped our gingerbread cookies in the past, so when I heard that a friend’s chef husband was making gingerbread biscotti, I thought this was a good reason to step that idea up a notch.

Fresh and ground ginger root .

These store very well and make a great idea for gift giving too, wrapped in cellophane bags tied with a bright ribbon. These crunchy cookies meant for dunking in anything from cocoa to cappuccino would be a tasty and welcome gift for sure.
