This is my modern twist on a traditional favourite of biscotti by adding walnuts and coconut. Makes an ideal morning or afternoon tea.
I serve this biscotti every Christmas and it is a big hit. I made a few changes: I decreased the flour to 3 cups (perfect), increased the coconut to 3/4 cup and toasted it, and used toasted pecans or almonds instead of walnuts (I like the flavor of the other two better). One time I forgot to add the coconut extract and the coconut flavor was not nearly so pronounced. I usually drizzle chocolate over the top for looks. This is a really great recipe, and if you like coconut you will fall in love. - 22 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a nice twist on walnut biscotti. I'd like to offer these suggestions to aid in flavor and forming: Decrease flour to 3 cups, toast the coconut til lightly browned and crunchy and increase to 1 cup, add a generous Tablespoon of Malibu rum instead of the coconut flavoring. Proceed with recipe as written. - 05 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great recipe with changes. Decrease flour to 2 1/2c, increase coconut to 3/4c and add 1/2c mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. I use slivered almonds or macadamia nuts in place of walnuts. I bake biscotti at least twice a month and this is the new favorite. - 13 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
