"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!"

  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 was surprised at how "soupy" the dough was; I'm used to dough that actually forms into logs. I wound up spreading the dough onto the cookie sheet, baking it and cutting it into squares. Taste ...

Don't Panic! I was ready to give this recipe a poor rating because the dough was so wet and loose, I thought "this just won't work". It did. My husband raved "they are better than the bakery." I...

I had to over an extra cup of flour just to make it hold together. It ended up coming out ok, but not extremely flavourful

i liked this! I changed the vanilla extract to almond, and had to chill the batter for over an hour before it was able to roll. Plus, I sprinkled sugar on them before the final bake. Yum!

I have made this many times now and everytime it turns out fantastically and my cousins really like it. If I were to change the recipe, I would put lemon juice in (in addition or instead of the ...
