It was before Christmas last year when my food blogger friend, Ashley made a big announcement. Ashley blogs over at Center Cut Cook and is always sharing some of the most delicious looking food!

What was supposed to be the most wonderful news (a much awaited pregnancy with their first child) was also paired with some devastating news. Her husband Ryan was just diagnosed with stage 4 Colon Cancer. I’ve never met Ashley and Ryan, but through the food blogging world you get to “know” people. We are all on this crazy food roller coaster, all sharing each other’s recipes on facebook and pinterest. We are a community of like minded people, ya know? And when one of our peeps is in need, well, that’s when the “family” comes together to help.

***SILENT AUCTION CLOSED***

 

Today, is our day of help for Ashley and Ryan, and their new baby, Miles. Another mutual food friend, Carrie from Bakeaholic Mama is hosting a silent auction to help raise money for the family. This is where YOU can help! Head over to Bakeaholic Mama’s website today, and look at all the wonderful items up for auction. Things like….

  • Cookbooks from your favorite bloggers
  • Baking baskets with fun tools
  • Homemade goodies (including this Coconut Biscotti) and other items

 

Now, as for this biscotti, well, you know how much I love biscotti. I have been wanting to make a coconut version for quite some time! This was absolutely delicious, and perfectly sweet. Dunk it in your favorite coffee for a delicious breakfast. Go the extra step and whip up a batch of Almond Joy coffee creamer for some extra coconut flavor!

  1. Hi these were delicious and i wanted to make them for a friend but she is dairy free ..do you think i can substitute the butter for coconut oil or something else ?

  2. Thank you so much Aimee for sharing your Coconut Biscotti Recipe! I’m jusk baking them right now and I’m looking forward to taste them later. My house smells heavenly coconutly! I do want to ask you something, how do you achieve that some shredded coconut pastes to the top of the biscotti? In your recipe you dont indicate that after giving shape to the dough we must sprinkle some coconut, but I did. Nevertheless after the first bake and when cutting them all that top coconut felt down. So, what is your secret to paste it? Thank you so much!!

    1. I don’t do anything to get those coconut flakes. They just appeared. Some batches had more showing than others 🙂 Enjoy the biscotti!!

  3. I was browsing through all the #TeamRyan auction items the other day and noticed your biscotti… What a great way to assist Ashley and her family:) I just love coconut and biscotti and they look so perfect for dipping in my morning coffee…

  4. Aimee the silent auction is a wonderful way to help your friends and spread awareness of a serious illness. I’m sure the family is incredibly thankful to have such lovely supportive friends like you and the other bloggers. 🙂 I’m going to head over now, but not before I bookmark this biscotti!

  5. These sound amazing! I still have biscotti on my to-do list lol Maybe this’ll push me over the edge to making it sooner 😉

  6. A great cause AND some great biscotti? I love all the things about this post! Heading over the check these babies out! Pinned!

  7. It’s great how everyone rallies to help people who need support. I love the idea of an auction! And your biscotti will go quickly. I can imagine that so many people are dying to try the food you’ve baked!

  8. What a great cause and with these babies up for grabs, you should be able to easily raise a million bucks! They look great, Aimee! Pinned 🙂

  9. It’s great that you guys are doing this for #TeamRyan. I just bid on something myself over at Carrie’s site! These biscotti look unbelievably good. I imagine the coconut must go so well with coffee. Yum! I’m ready for one right now!
