“Mondel Brodt is a semi-sweet cookie/bread much like biscotti. A delicious Jewish treat. Great with coffee or tea.”

Original recipe yields 20 cookies

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until light. Mix in the orange extract and oil. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the egg mixture along with the walnuts. Form dough into 4 logs and place them 3 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet; flatten slightly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Remove to a cutting board and slice each log into 1 inch wide diagonal slices with a serrated knife. Return the slices to the baking sheet, cut side down.
  4. Return the slices to the oven and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until toasted.

I have been meaning to review this recipe, because I have been making it for a long time and, in fact, am eating a slice right now!! This makes an absolutely delicious cookie. The directions are excellent and accurate. The only thing I do differently is add 1 T dried orange peel in addition to the orange extract. I've made it with chopped almonds when I'm out of walnuts and it still tastes fabulous. Everyone loves this cookie, and it keeps so well in tupperware. It does seem to take twice as long to make because you slice and bake them a second time, but don't let that deter you. It is worth it, and makes a decent number of cookies. Make sure you watch them brown and turn them once during the browning step. If you have cookie racks, it makes the cooling process go much faster. (As does a ceiling fan in the kitchen.) Try these cookies - they are great.

Incredible!!! These are so good, so much better than I expected. You gotta use the orange extract. Totally made it. I drizzled them with white chocolate afterwards. I will be making these again and again...maybe tonight!

This is fun and easy to make. I didn't think there was enough dough to make 4 logs, so i only made 2. Don't be fooled! They rise alot. My biscuits were too big to be biscoti like, but they were great. Thanx
