Egg Nog Biscotti

by aimee @ shugarysweets on November 26, 2012


I have probably posted almost a dozen biscotti recipes on this blog. Cranberry Orange, Chocolate Peppermint, Snickerdoodle, Turtle and many many more….

I realized the other day as I was sipping on my coffee and crunching on an Eggnog Biscotti WHY I love it so much.

Cookies for breakfast.

Biscotti tastes so much like a crunchy cookie (and remember, I love crunchy cookies!?!). It’s now okay to eat cookies for breakfast, just call it biscotti!

And eggnog? Well, seriously, eggnog is a must in my house during the holiday season. I can literally drink it from the carton! Over. And over again!

These would be real pretty boxed up with some pretty ribbon to give as a teacher gift or a hostess gift! Try some of my other varieties too! Biscotti keeps really well in an airtight container (I actually just use ziploc freezer bags). ENJOY!

Don’t forget, if you haven’t entered my giveaway for $50 worth of Candiquik goodies…do so now! And come back on Thursday for a new giveaway!!!


Egg Nog Biscotti

Yield: 12-14 large slices

Crunchy eggnog biscotti- a delicious treat with your coffee, or the perfect gift for a friend. You decide!


    For the Biscotti:
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp rum extract
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • For the Glaze:
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp eggnog
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg


  1. In mixer, beat butter with granulated sugar until creamy. Add eggs and rum extract. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape dough into 12in x 6in rectangle. (Square the corners using fingertips, smoothing the top of the dough too!)
  3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 28-30 minutes. Remove.
  4. Allow to cool about 10 minutes. Slice biscotti into 12-14 slices (about 3/4-1 inch each). Turn them on sides and put back in the oven. Bake 20 minutes. Remove and cool completely before adding glaze.
  5. For the glaze, whisk the powdered sugar, eggnog and nutmeg together until desired consistency. Drizzle on cooled biscotti. Allow to set (about 20-30 minutes)- or refrigerate to "speed set" the glaze. Store biscotti in airtight containers! ENJOY.

What treats do you like to give as gifts? Here are a few of MY favorite teacher gift ideas…

 Like my EggNog Truffles or Andes Mint Cookie Dough Truffles

Both are fun to make ahead of time and arrange in a pretty box with ribbon!

Do you prefer NO Bake recipes? Easy and delicious, but very little work?

Try making some Chocolate Peppermint Grahams and Chocolate Covered Pretzels with Peppermint

 Finally, I love giving the gift of fudge! There is nothing more beautiful than a delicious plate of tasty candy!

Try making some Cinnabon Fudge or Peanut Butter Fudge for your candy tray this year!

You’re right–biscotti makes it totally acceptable to eat cookies for breakfast! I love this egg nog version. I’m with you–I can drink it by the carton.

yes!! my coworker said the same thing the other day – i was wondering why everyone loved biscotti so much and she said, “it’s because it’s like a COOKIE for breakfast”…these eggnog ones are perfect for the season!!

Power to the carton eggnog drinkers…I’m with you on that confession:-) I like the idea of cookies for breakfast…now if only they were chewy and not crunchy, I think I would like it better. Eggnog flavored sure sounds yummy though!!!

This post is dangerous! Look at all of these goodies. OK…I have never made biscotti and been wanting to try to…so I just may give this recipe a crack this week…YUM!

Holly, you definitely need to give it a try! Biscotti sounds so intimidating, but it’s not! Then you can enjoy this special treat all month long, if it lasts that long in your house! Okay, make a few varieties, then it *might* last!

Hi aimee!! this biscotti looks like holiday perfection – I don’t typically like egg-nog straight up, but I will gladly take it in a glaze/biscotti form with all my coffee :)

I’m all in favor of cookies for breakfast! I’m on an eggnog kick & these look awesome! Could go for a few right now!

I’ve made eggnog scones, but never biscotti! These would be PERFECT hostess gifts…after I’d eaten my share, of course :)

Any comments on the pack-ability of these with the glaze on top? Will it smudge, smoosh, etc? Or is it more like a coating that is more stable?
