Making biscotti has become one of my favorite things. While there are desserts that are easier to make, biscotti is still relatively simple. They also look impressive, no matter if they are studded with fruit, dipped in chocolate, or drizzled with glaze.
Last year around this time, I shared my peppermint biscotti with you all. It’s such a great holiday flavor and looks so festive too. I wanted to bring you another holiday biscotti flavor and decided that it had to be eggnog — one of our favorite Christmas drinks. One of the great things about this recipe is that you won’t need a lot of eggnog, which means it will leave plenty for drinking.
Another item you’ll need for this eggnog biscotti recipe is quality butter. I recommend using Land O’Lakes Butter, which has a short & simple ingredient list you’ll love: sweet cream and salt. It will not only make for great biscotti, but superior results with all of your holiday baking.
Do you see that price in the photo below for a 2 pack of Land O’Lakes Butter?? I paid just $4.98 for 2 lbs of butter at Walmart. With all the holiday baking and cooking I’m going to be doing, I stocked up! Finds like this seriously make me happy.
The eggnog biscotti has a dough that is easy to mix up. The dough is then rolled into two long logs (about 14″ long) and patted down. In the photo below you can see how mine looked before going into the oven and then also right after (the first) baking.
After baking, the logs are then cut into slices, which are placed in the oven again to dry them, as you want the biscotti to be crunchy. After removing from the oven, you’ll drizzle the eggnog glaze on. There is different ways to do this, but I prefer to stand the biscotti up (rounded side upwards) and add the glaze to the tops. I do this by dipping the tines of a fork in the glaze, and then in a sweeping motion, about 6″ above the biscotti, letting the glaze to fall in lines over the tops.
Since bicotti is very dry and crunchy, it makes a perfect companion to a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Biscotti is also a great homemade food gift. Pair it with some coffee beans or tea bags, and maybe a new mug, and you’ve got an inexpensive gift that’s sure to be appreciated.
