Coconut Biscotti

Need a cookie?  I do, especially after my date with the stair master! In all seriousness, if you like biscotti or don’t know, but you are sure that you enjoy crisp cookies – then these are delicious and super easy to make.  They are tasty on their own or with a hot cup of  joe!

Coconut Biscotti: recipe courtesy of Cooking Light

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp grated whole nutmeg
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cup flaked sweet coconut
Directions: Preheat oven to 300.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measurement cups, level with a knife.  Combine flour and next four ingredients.  Place sugar, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes or until thick. Add flour mixture and coconut; stir to combine (dough will be very sticky).  Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface; knead lightly 7 or 8 times.  Shape dough into a 15 x 3-inch roll.  Place roll on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and pat to 1-inch thickness.  Bake at 300 for 40 minutes or until roll is golden brown.  Cool 5 minutes on a wire rack.

Cut roll diagonally into 20 (1/2-inch thick) slices; stand slices upright on baking sheet.  Bake 20 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft in the center but will harden as they cool).  Remove from baking sheet; cool completely on wire rack.  Yield: 20 cookies Nutrition: 90 cal; 2.5g fat; 1.8g protien; 15.3g carbs; 0.6g fiber.

Not on a diet? These would also be delicious drizzled with white chocolate and chopped pecans or you can stir in mini chocolate chips before baking (options are endless)!
