1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup molasses 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp baking powder 2 teaspoons ginger 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves 1/4 cup dried cranberries, chopped (optional) 1/4 cup white chocolate chips (optional) Preheat oven to 350* and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Cream together butter, sugar, and molasses until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix until fully incorporated. In a small bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and spices. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture, a little at a time, until combined. At this point, I took out half the dough, and gently mixed in the cranberries to the remaining half. (You can skip this step, or make the entire batch with cranberries, using about 1/2 cup.) Make two logs, about ½ inch thick and four inches wide. Bake at 350* for about 15-18 minutes, or until slightly golden on the edges. Allow to cool and cut on the diagonal, creating roughly 1/2 inch slices. Turn the slices on their sides, and bake for another 15 – 18 minutes, until crisp. If using the white chocolate, melt in the microwave or over a double-boiler, and using a pastry bag or parchment cone, pipe a thick line onto one side of the biscotti. Makes about 2 dozen biscotti. enJOY!
CookieLynn recipes! However, it's our inaugural recipe and I could not be more excited! Thanks to CookieLynn for developing such an awesome recipe...and working with our teas and spices. I am on my way to the store for molasses and cranberries!

I made these gingerbread biscotti using Organic Madagascar Cinnamon and Organic Ginger Powder. They were paired with a fantastic English Breakfast blend, which was just a bit spicier than I’m used to. To add a bit more sweetness to the mix, I included a cranberry/white chocolate variation.Normally I won't put a little note in prior to our
