Merry Monday after Christmas! No, really. Merry Christmas! I hope you had a wonderful day with family and friends. We were on the sunny beaches of Florida… an absolutely perfect destination Christmas with my parents and sister and brother-in-law. So much FUN!! Except for when my phone took a tumble in the ocean on Christmas day. So, so sad. I got a new phone [woohoo]; fortunately my old phone was about 1 1/2 years old. Now we’re back in Tennessee, back to reality, kinda sorta. Ben and I both have another week off… and I can’t wait! I forsee lots of reading, kitty snuggles, and relaxing in my immediate future. Aside from popping in today to share this biscotti recipe for Mystery Dish, I don’t know if I’ll be blogging much til after the new year. But we will see!🙂

Anyways, I made these biscotti last week before heading to Florida for Mystery Dish. The lovely Colleen from The Smart Cookie Cook was our host. She gave us a GREAT list of ingredients to work with, including:

  1. White Chocolate
  2. Peppermint Bark
  3. Muenster cheese
  4. Eggnog
  5. Canned biscuits
  6. Nutmeg
  7. Browned butter
  8. Cherry tomatoes
  9. Spinach
  10. Roasted Garlic
  11. Vanilla ice cream
  12. Cream cheese

These biscotti are made with three of the above ingredients: eggnog, nutmeg, and white chocolate. Let’s start with the biscotti: aside from allll the lovely spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves, I also added some sliced almonds and some chopped white chocolate. Tiny sliced almonds + chocolate = lotsa small pieces in each bite. Small pieces also makes slicing the biscotti easier after its initial bake.

After the biscotti baked and cooled, I finished it off with a super simple eggnog glaze. It was just eggnog and powdered sugar. Easy as pie!🙂 We have been enjoying our biscotti over the past week or so with coffee, tea, and even hot cocoa! They’re a fun treat to an already fun season. Hope you enjoy, and be sure to check out other recipes from this month’s edition of Mystery Dish!

Spiced Biscotti with Eggnog Glaze

  • Servings: 16
  • Time: 60 minutes
  • Print

biscotti from Bon Appetit; glaze from Cupcake Project


for biscotti

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips, chopped [measure then chop]

for glaze

  • 1 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup eggnog


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.

With an electric mixer, beat egg and sugar on medium speed for 2 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add in brandy and vanilla, beating to combine. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Slowly mix in flour mixture into egg mixture. Fold in almonds and white chocolate.

Spoon batter onto baking sheet. With wet hands, shape into a 2 by 10 inch log.

Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown, then remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes.

Transfer biscotti to a cutting board and slice into 1/3 inch pieces. Return pieces to baking sheet, then bake for 10 minutes. Flip and bake for another 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven. Biscotti will continue to harden as it cools.

When cool, whisk together powdered sugar and eggnog in a small bowl. Brush or drizzle onto biscotti and let glaze set. When set, brush or drizzle on a second layer if desired.

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
