Coconut Biscotti

The best mornings are when I get up with my husband, before the baby wakes up, and get to spend a few minutes with him and a cup of coffee before he heads out the door for the day.

We both love coffee, and things that pair well with coffee. Like chocolate cake, cinnamon rolls and biscotti.

This is some of the best biscotti I have had- perfect for dunking in your cup o' joe. And it goes amazingly with this:

The combination is to-die-for good! Probably the most perfect way to start the day. Try it.

Coconut Biscotti
Inspiration:Annies Eats
Pre-heat oven at 300.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Mix together.

3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. coconut extract
1 Cup flaked, sweetened coconut
3 oz. semi-sweet or milk chocolate

Beat sugar and eggs for 2 minutes, til thickened.
Add in extracts.
Mix in dry ingredients just until combined.
Fold in coconut.

Turn dough out onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. I didn't have any, so I just greased mine and it was fine!
Divide dough in half, and make two logs about 1 inch deep, and 4 inches wide.
Leave room between the logs as they will spread while baking.

Bake for 40 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes, then cut diagonally into 7-10 biscotti per log.
Turn slices onto their side, and return to oven for 10 minutes.
Flip onto the other side, and bake for another 10 minutes.

Melt chocolate at 20 second intervals in microwave til smooth.
Drizzle over biscotti and allow to cook until chocolate is set.
Store in airtight container.
