You may substitute additional eggnog if rum isn't your thing. For a variation, try using one of the flavored eggnogs available around the holidays. —Shannon Dobos, Calgary, Alberta

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Dash salt
  • GLAZE:
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 5 teaspoons eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon dark rum, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Beat butter and sugar until blended. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in eggnog and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt; gradually beat into butter mixture (dough will be sticky).
  2. Divide dough in half. On a greased baking sheet, shape each portion into a 12x3-in. rectangle. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 16-19 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 300°. Remove rectangles from pans to wire racks; cool 10 minutes.
  3. Place rectangles on a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, trim ends of rectangles and cut diagonally into 1/2-in. slices. Return to baking sheets, cut side down. Bake until firm, about 10 minutes per side. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  4. Mix glaze ingredients. Drizzle over biscotti with a spoon.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Since the dough is on the sticky side, use a gentle touch or lightly floured hands, if necessary, when shaping.
  • These cookies make great gifts and would be a fun addition to a coffee bar or with after-dinner drinks.
