This year, to help get me into the spirit of Christmas cookie decorating, I invited a few helpers come and spend and afternoon baking cookies with me. The enthusiasm of these young bakers was contagious. 👩🏻🍳 They were rolling, cutting, frosting and sprinkling with reckless abandon. 🤣
I haven't actually added up the exact number of cookies that I need to bake and decorate this month, because honestly, I don't think I want to know the total number. 😬I've learned that the best way for me to get all of my cookies made, is to break up the sugar cookie orders with other holiday baking. Biscotti is one of my favorite Christmas treats to make in between batches of sugar cookies.
I have 42 different biscotti recipes on my website and without question, the most requested biscotti flavor by friends, family and clients, is White Chocolate Coconut. I find this so curious because coconut is a very unpopular flavor in any other dessert. And among the chocolate family - white chocolate is the flavor that is requested the least. So it doesn't make any sense to me that White Chocolate Coconut leads the category for most requested biscotti flavor.
I have no explanation for why White Chocolate Coconut Biscotti is at the top of the list of biscotti favorites. I can assure you though, that I can't seem to make enough of it these days. That alone should be enough to inspire you to try some White Chocolate Coconut Biscotti for yourself.
White Chocolate Coconut Biscotti
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup unsweetened dried coconut finely shredded
½ cup butter, softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs room temperature
2 tablespoons water
¾ teaspoon coconut extract
½ cup mini white chocolate chips
1 cup white melting chocolate
½ cup shredded dried coconut sweetened or unsweetened
Spread over cooled biscotti and sprinkle with coconut.
Allow to set.
Tip of the day: If you need some gifts for teachers, neighbors, postal workers, etc - white chocolate coconut biscotti wrapped up with a pretty bow makes a great Christmas gift. 🎁 😉
