Mango-Coconut Biscotti

makes about 2 dozen
baking time: one hour and twenty-five minutes total (plus 15 min. of cooling in the middle)

2 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole grain flour (I used spelt)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (I used reduced fat)
1/2 cup dried mango, finely chopped
zest of 1 lime

lime glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
about 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until well combined. Add eggs and beat until smooth.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt. Add the flour mixture, as well as the coconut, mango, and lime zest to the egg mixture and stir until just combined. It will seem a bit dry, but use your hands to mix until dough comes together.

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half, and shape each half into a log, approximately 8 inches in length. Place logs 2-3 inches apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Flatten each log into a rectangle, approximately 3 inches wide.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown and cracked on top. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temp to 275 degrees.

On a cutting board, trim the ends of the logs, and cut diagonally into 1/2-3/4 inch thick slices (you should get about 12 per log). Place the slices cut side down on the cookie sheet, and bake for 20 minutes. Flip the slices over and bake for another 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

To make the lime glaze, whisk the powdered sugar and lime juice until combined, adding more juice or sugar to reach desired consistency.

Once the biscotti have fully cooled, drizzle or brush the lime glaze onto one cut side of each biscotti, Allow to harden (you can speed this up by putting them in the fridge). Enjoy!
