I recently purchased my first bottle of molasses (mo lasses!)... and the grocery store was sampling some cheapo gingerbread men. We are also running low on margarine, oil, shortening, and pretty much every fat but peanut butter. I went searching for a good recipe and found Susan's fat free gingerbread biscotti recipe!
Hell yeah! I followed the recipe (adding a bit of pepper and salt) despite cautions from the comment section that the recipe was difficult or impossible to get right. Hey, what can I say, my oven is magical. These turned out wonderfully!
I love biscotti all lined up and ready to go in for another baking! Perhaps it's their resemblance to my other fondness (toast).
These could stand for more spices, but I really don't mind the lack of fat in these at all. I've dunked them in my coffee, and they held up wonderfully. When I make them again, I'd probably add some icing or maybe half-dipped in chocolate - or maybe add some dried cranberries.
I've been testing cookie recipes looking for some very tasty that will hold up to mailing. These aren't quite yet what I want but perhaps with the addition of chocolate or glazing they'll be just right. But in the meantime, it's time for some more coffee or maybe a strong cup of black tea... and a half dozen of these. :P
