As kids we all put out cookies and milk for Santa. The joy you would get when making them knowing that Santa would soon be enjoying the cookies you helped mom bake in the kitchen. As a kid I didn't quite realize that warm milk and a full belly makes you awfully tired. Therefore I was probably making it harder for Santa to stay awake to deliver the toys to all the other girls and boys. So this year I made Santa biscotti and instead of putting out milk I will put out coffee. How could Santa not need a little coffee and biscotti when he is flying around the world in under one night?
• 1/3 c. sugar
• 1 c. all- purpose flour
• 1/2 c. coconut flakes (sweetened or unsweetened)
• 1/4 tsp. salt
• 1 tsp. baking powder
• 1 1/2 Tbsp. coconut milk
• 1 tsp. coconut extract
• 1 c. white chocolate chips
- Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Grind coconut flakes in food processor for about 10 seconds until fine.
- Mix together flour, baking powder, coconut flakes and salt in a medium size bowl.
- Beat eggs and sugar with a mixer on medium high speed until pale and thick, about 5 minutes. Beat in coconut milk and coconut extract and reduce speed to low. Gradually add flour mixture and beat until there are no traces of flour left. Stir in ¼ c. of the white chocolate chips. The dough will be sticky.
- Scrape the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, forming a line the center.. Wet hands and pat dough into 9 x 3 inch rectangle.
- Bake until puffed and dry to the touch, about 25 minutes. Cool on pan for 15 minutes, keep oven on. Peel off parchment paper from dough and transfer to a cutting board. Cut dough into 1/3 inch thick slices.
- Lay slices flat on baking sheet and bake until dry about 10 minutes on each side. Let the cookies cool completely because as they cool they get more crisp.
- With the remaining ¾ c. white chocolate chips heat up in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until the chocolate is melted. You can drizzle or dip your biscotti into the chocolate.
