Gingerbread and Coffee Biscotti
Food scientist Katie Rosenburg combined the flavors of gingerbread, coffee and chocolate to create these delicious biscotti. They are double baked to allow for maximum dunkability in your favourite coffee! She created them to go with her gingerbread latte, but we think they stand on their own.
