As much as I love to bake, I have never tried making biscotti. There are so many wonderful recipes available ~ French Toast, Lemon, Brown Sugar .... Kendra makes a delicious biscotti using Dark Chocolate Almond.
Well, I decided that baking biscotti would be on my To Do List this weekend. I love coconut pizzelles, so what about a coconut biscotti!
Oh, my goodness ~ deliciousness!!!
6 tablespoon softened unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 egg + 1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon coconut extract
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/3 cups of shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Thoroughly cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add one egg and the yolk.
Slowly add the flour ~ it will form a soft dough. Mix in 1 cup of coconut.
Shape the dough into a long log, about 10" x 3" and place on a Silpak baking sheet or parchment paper.
Brush with a beaten egg mixed with 1/2 water. Sprinkle with additional coconut.
Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven. While still warm, cut 1" slices diagonally.
Place back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes.
Cool, and enjoy with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
Makes a great breakfast treat ♥
