Lime Coconut Biscotti
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
These are absolutely wonderful biscotti. Great texture and crisp as they should be. Don’t worry about the dough being sticky when you handle it to make the loaves. Just flour your hands when you are shaping the loaves. I did add extra lime zest, probably about 2 to 3 tablespoons.
I loved these. Followed the recipe exactly and we very much enjoyed these. I've already added it to the cookbook. Thanks for sharing!!
This is a great recipe, making a biscotti one would find in Italy but maybe not overly sweet enough for American taste buds. I instinctively used twice as much lime zest added lime extract, as well. Had considered making a lime glaze but now I'm sitting here enjoying a couple with my afternoon coffee and thinking, it's perfect as is. Subtle & sophisticated.
I made this and even though I added at least a total of 2 cups of flour the dough spread like cake batter rather than a Biscotti log. It was not sweet enough even with an additional 1/2 cup of sugar.
I love the lime and coconut flavor combined so well. DH loves them too!!!
Have made this twice, first time as written and second time replacing the corn meal with 7/8 cup flour and adding about 2 tsp Truvia. We prefer all flour and more sweetness, though the recipe was very good as written. It really has more of a cookie texture than a biscotti texture. I wouldn't dare try to dunk one because it seems too crumbly. They do taste heavenly! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This recipe is absolutely unbelievable! I am not a huge fan of coconut and I LOVED this!! Some of my family likes a stronger taste of lime, some do not. This has the perfect amount of flavor without being overpowering. If you're looking for a stronger citrus flavor I would recommend using more zest or crystallized lime packets like True Lime products. It keeps your dough from getting too moist without taking away the flavor you're looking for. As for the cornmeal... I like it a lot. It gives it a more crumbley cookie texture rather than just a crunchy bread like cookie. Love This Biscotti!
this biscotti is totally different then any other biscotti that I have made. Not too crazy about the cornmeal and it did not taste very citrus y. If I make it again I will add way more zest or use lemons instead of limes.
I have not made thiis recipe yet. Does one use the sweet bakers coconut found at the grocery store? or unsweetened? Thank you.
This recipe is awesome. You would never believe it's low cal or low fat. I didn't have limes so I used lemons and it was great, plus I added 1 tsp lemon extract because I didn't have the zest. You'll love this cookie. It's very satisfying.
