  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Stir in the coconut extract and the eggs. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the coconut and walnuts.
  3. Divide dough into 2 pieces. Roll each piece out into a log about 10 inches long. Place them on an unprepared cookie sheet and flatten them until they are about 3 inches wide.
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Cool on baking sheet for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Slice the logs crosswise into 1/2 inch wide slices. Place slices cut side down onto the baking sheet.
  6. Return to the oven for an additional 15 minutes, until crisp and light brown. Cool and store in an airtight container.

What did I do wrong, Carl? My dough turned out very dry and crumbly. I couldn't get it to form into a log. I ended up making little cookies out of it.

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 bak...

Yum! Yum! Using the extract is the key to the taste in this, so don't skip the extract! Some reviews said this was too crumbly (just add some milk to the mix, people!), but mine came out great...

****5 star biscotti recipe. Great tea or coffee biscuit as well. YUMMY! Only change was to add one cup of coconut and I lessened the flour as another reviewer suggested to 3 cups. I did add ...

Excellent recipe. Crispy and flavorful. Its a very good basic recipe in which you can sub. lemon, almond or orange extract for the coconut extract. Toast your coconut for the extra nutty coconut...

This is a very nice biscotti. It is a little richer than biscotti made with egg only. The butter in this recipe makes it very rich. The coconut flavor is very subtle. This is also quite easy...
