Gingerbread Biscotti recipe – 141 calories

Ingredients:
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cups flour (10 ounces)
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped (4 ounces)
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped (4 ounces)
1/4 cup molasses
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons grated orange zest


Preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
2. Line a sheet pan with parchment.
3. In a stand mixer, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg; mix thoroughly on medium-low speed.
4. Briefly mix in the apricots and pecans.
5. In a measuring cup, mix the eggs, molasses and orange zest.
6. With the mixer on low, slowly add the egg mixture to the other mixture. Mix for about 1-2 minutes (until the dough starts to come together in clumps).
7. Divide the dough in two parts (about 1 lb each), and form logs about 10 inches by 1 1/2 inch each.
8. Bake on the pan for about 30-35 minutes (until the tops are cracked and spring back when lightly pressed).
9. Let cool on a rack for about 10 minutes.
10. Peel the logs from the parchment and move to a cutting board. Slice diagonally into pieces about 3/4 inch wide.
11. Place the biscotti back on the pan, cut sides down (it’s ok to reuse the parchment) and bake for about 10-20 minutes (depending on how you want them – chewy or crunchy).
12. Let cool completely, then store in an airtight container.

  5. The holiday treats can be extravagant but simple. The foods do not have to be complex meals that take hours to prepare. You can offer some nice foods that will augment the home. People who use the basics such as candy canes and holiday recipes to prepare and serve foods have a head start on the settings for the season. Don’t forget about the popular gingerbread house and ginger bread cookies.
