You'll love these crunchy biscotti-type cookies. Add almonds (mandeln) or maraschino cherries for variety. We gave these as teacher gifts last year and got lots of compliments!

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; set aside. Beat the eggs and sugar together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Whisk in the vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and orange juice. Stir in the chocolate chips and the flour mixture until no dry lumps remain. Divide the cookie dough into two pieces. Form each piece into a roll about 3 inches wide and 12 inches long. Place the rolls, side by side, onto the prepared cookie sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the rolls have started to brown, about 20 minutes. Remove the rolls from the oven onto a rack. Let cool about 10 minutes until cool enough to handle; cut the mandelbrot into 1/2-inch thick slices. Return the cookies to the baking sheet and lay them flat.
  4. Return to the oven and bake until lightly golden, about 15 minutes more. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

I found this recipe very easy to follow and the mandel bread came out very well. One comment, I would definately reccomend using waxed paper under the bread , rather than greasing the pan, for convenience sake. I tweaked the recipe by changing 1 cup chocolate chips to 3/4 cup choc chips & 3/4 cup chopped pecans. It came out great! Thanks!

I decided to drop the chocolate chips and substitue lemon juice for the orange juice. i also grated a lemon rind. I used wax paper under the loaves, like previously recomended, and it pealed off easily. a very simple recipe, with very good results. I will make this one again! Thanks! by the way, Mandel=almond. I think it's funny that this recipe has no nuts in it whatsoever!

I used lemon juice, lemon zest and almonds. In place of 1 cup sugar, I used 1 cup of a natural sugar substitute. I used the the sweetner's conversion chart from sugar to sweetner. The Mandel bread was great and not one person who had some of it noticed the sugar switch!
