    1 hour 1 minute

    These are great with tea or coffee! I never really measure the ingredients after rum but I've tried to approximate for you... My friends LOVE this recipe!

    Serves: 42 

    • 4 1/4 cups (550g) flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 250g butter, softened
    • 1 1/2 cups (330g) white sugar
    • 3 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons rum
    • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut essence
    • 1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
    • 1/2 cup chopped dried pineapple
    • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:46min  ›  Ready in:1hour1min 

    1. In a large bowl cream together the butter and 1 1/2 cups of sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the rum, pineapple juice and coconut essence until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter. Stir in the pistachio nuts, pineapple and coconut until evenly distributed. Cover and refrigerate for about 10 minutes.
    2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease two baking trays.
    3. Divide the dough into four equal parts. Form each piece of dough into a 30cm long log shape on a lightly floured surface. Place two logs onto each baking tray and pat down until they are about 8cm wide. There should be at least 5cm of space between each log.
    4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven until firm but not crisp. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.
    5. Place the biscotti bars on a cutting board and use a serrated knife to cut into 2cm wide diagonal slices. Return the slices to the baking trays cut side down. Return to the oven. Bake for 8 minutes then turn the biscuits over and bake for an additional 8 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Cool completely then store in an airtight container.

    I made these for a luau themed party at work. I almost didn't take them b/c I was afraid too many people wouldn't like the pineapple or coconut but then figured oh well I made them so take them and I thought they were good. Of all the items I've made from this site over the years, this one got more positive results than any other. I had so many requests for the recipe and the men loved it!!! One told me to go into business and sell these cookies. Even my kids loved the crumbs that were left over so I guess I'll be making them again. Not a difficult recipe and so worth the time.  -  13 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made these yesterday, with a few changes. Brandy for rum, lime juice for pineapple, vanilla for coconut extract, walnuts for pistachios, and 1 c. coconut instead of dried pineapple. I know that changes a lot about the recipe. But the basic ingredient measurements and baking times were dead on, so 5 stars.  -  15 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
