Key Ingredient: Flaked sweetened coconut
Great for coffee with unexpected guests, biscotti is a smart thing to have on hand during the holidays. Sure, you have to bake twice to achieve the crisp-yet-crumbly texture that's a hallmark of biscotti. But that's the good thing about this recipe―you can make it ahead whenever it suits you. It's one tough cookie (and we mean that in the best possible way), so it travels well―to gatherings or in even in the mail.
