Gingerbread Biscotti

I looked through over a dozen Gingerbread Biscotti Recipes and this looked to be the best.  And it was !
I’m not much of a dunker, but I’ve heard they’re excellent for dunking.

Gingerbread biscotti 5aPreparation:
Preheat oven to 375.    Line cookie sheet with parchment paper
In a large bowl mix together the melted butter, sugar, eggs and molasses.  Combine well. 
In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients.  Whisk dry ingredients together to incorporate. 
Mix dry ingredients into butter mixture and continue to work it until a thick dough forms
Divide dough in half.  Shape each half into logs on your parchment paper.  Logs should be roughly 12 x 3 inches.
Pat each log down until it is about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Watch that the bottoms do not get overly brown.  
Remove  from oven and allow to cool enough to handle.
With a sharp serrated knife, cut each log into 3/4 inch thick slices.  
Turn each slice on its side and bake again for about 5-7  minutes.
Turn each cookie over and bake another 5-7 minutes.  Cookies should feel dry and look crispy.
Let cool completely to room temperature.
Drizzle with melted white chocolate.  (Don’t skip this step, they’re heavenly with the chocolate!)
