"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."

mini semisweet chocolate chips
coarsely chopped almonds
delicious recipe! not too sweet and good amount of almonds. I do recommend toasting the almonds slightly beforehand to enhance the almond flavour. also wait the full 20 min before slicing the warm loaves as it is much easier and makes for a cleaner looking product.
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.
Very good mandelbrot! I was glad that this recipe did not have a crumbly consistency, like many of the other mandelbrot and biscotti recipes I have tried. I will make this again, soon
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 a Bullet so I get a mix of almond dust, and chunks that help reduce the stickiness. This has become a family favorite.
These were very good. To add a nice touch and some more flavor:
In the top of a double boiler, melt 12oz chocolate chips with 2 tablespoons
shortening, stirring frequently.
Dip half of each biscotti stick in chocolate and then let cool.
Great texture and easy to make--I didn't have almonds so used a little bit extra mini chocolate chips--great recipe!
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. This recipe is DELICIOUS! Not as rock hard as biscotti. Family and friends raved on this. Will definitely make again.
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 loaf. Overall a nice addition to my hot coffee and tea drinks in the morning.
