November = coconut month!

I didn't even realize this until now but my only other post so far in November also has coconut in it as well - so may as well make the month about it.  I do love coconut so it shouldn't be tough!  Today is gray, drizzly and cold here in Minnesota - much like many days in November tend to be.  I made Snicker salad to take to my mom's tomorrow where we are celebrating Thanksgiving Family style a wee bit early.  So while I was in the kitchen figured may as well turn on the oven and warm up the house as well. 

Coconut Almond Biscotti
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
3 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. flaked coconut
1 c. toasted, sliced almonds

Mix together your butter and sugar until creamy.  Add in vanilla and eggs.  Beat well.  Add in your dry ingredients.  Mix in your coconut and almonds.  Divide dough in half and form each half into a log (about 10" long and about 3" wide).  Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 32 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.  Take each loaf and slice into 1" slices.  Place slices (laying down flat) on your baking sheet and return to the oven for 12 minutes.  Flip each slice and bake another 12 minutes.  Cool,  Enjoy!
