● 2 tsp Baking Powder
● 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
● 2 tsp Ground Ginger
● 1/8 tsp Ground Cloves
● Pinch Black Pepper
● ½ tsp Coarse Sea Salt
● ½ cup Dark Brown Sugar
● ½ cup Granulated Sugar

● 7 TBSP Unsalted Butter melted and cooled
● 2 Large Eggs
● 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
● 1 Large Egg White
● ½ cup Chocolate Chips
● ½ cup Sprinkles or Chopped Walnuts
● Preheat oven to 350°.
● Line one large or two small baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
● In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, pepper and salt; set aside.
● In a medium bowl, whisk together brown sugar, granulated sugar, molasses, butter, whole eggs and vanilla.
● Add wet ingredients to the dry mixture and stir to combine.
● Divide your sticky dough in half.
● Using floured hands, transfer first half to the prepared baking sheet(s) and form the dough into a slightly flatted log about 11″ long by 2 1/2″ wide, going down one side of a baking sheet intended for two logs, or the center of a baking sheet intended for one log. Repeat with second half of dough.
● Whisk egg white in a small bowl until a little foamy and loose. Brush over top and sides of each log.
● Bake logs until golden brown all over, about 25 minutes.
● Place tray on cooling rack; let cool about 25 minutes or until lukewarm.
● Gently transfer each whole gingerbread biscotti log to a cutting board. Using a sharp serrated knife and gently sawing motion, cut logs on the diagonal into 1/2-inch wide slices.
● Arrange slices, a cut side down, on baking sheet(s). Bake for another 6-7 minutes, until golden underneath. Turn each biscotti over and bake for a final 6-7 minutes, until lightly bronzed all over.
● Let cool on rack.
● Melt chocolate on stove or in a microwave.
● Dip one end of the Gingerbread Biscotti into the chocolate; add sprinkles or nuts.
● Keep in an airtight container at room temperature.

If you decide to add nuts or chocolate chips to the dough, mix it in when you mix the wet and dry together.
