Mom's Mandelbrot

Mom's Mandelbrot


"This is the Jewish equivalent to biscotti. It was handed down through three generations. I added the mini chocolate chips. The cookies are twice baked, first in logs and then in slices. Stored in an airtight container, these will keep for about two weeks."

delicious recipe! not too sweet and not too dry! i recommend a combination of coarse chopped and finely chopped almonds for a nice texture. Dough is sticky so i recommend wetting your hands a b...

Excellent recipe. Easy to make and follow. The first time I made these I kept to the recipe. Now (a year later) I use 1 cup almond, 1/2 cup 73% bittersweet chocolate. The almonds get chopped in ...

Great texture and easy to make--I didn't have almonds so used a little bit extra mini chocolate chips--great recipe!

By far the easiest alternative to biscotti recipe but I wish I had chopped sliced almond instead of coarsely chopping whole almonds because the nuts and chocolate chips made it hard to form the ...

This was pretty easy to make, except I found the dough a little sticky to work with. I also used 1/2 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 Cup cherry chips instead of the nuts and mini-chips. ...

I found that I needed to add more flour since the batter seemed a bit runny (from all the oil). Other than that, they were great. Like biscotti.

Not at all what I expected. It had a weird texture, not crunchy like biscotti. I even let it cool and rebaked it, thinking that it might make it crunchier.
