  • baking sheets
  • hand-held or stand mixer
  • parchment paper


  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • teaspoon baking powder
  • cup (about 8 large) candy canes finely crushed.
  • optional: melted white chocolate to drizzle on the cooled biscotti
  • optional: additional crushed candy canes to sprinkle on the drizzled white chocolate


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Beat the butter for 30 seconds, add the sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder and crushed peppermint candy canes. Mix to combine.
  • Divide the dough in half and place each half on the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Shape each half into logs that are approximately 1¼"x2"x10½". (You want logs that are uniformly 1¼" high and only 2" wide because they will spread in the oven.)
  • Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on the cookie sheet for 1 hour.
  • Cut each log, on a diagonal, in ½"-thick slices. Lay the slices, cut side down, on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Bake in a 325°F oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove the cookies and cool on wire racks.
  • If desired, once cool, drizzle each biscotti with melted white chocolate.
