My mother received a very similar recipe from a Jewish coworker. She makes it every year at Christmas and it is always a hit! I made a few alterations to this recipe to make it as close to my mother's as possible. I substituted the chocolate chips for chopped walnuts (although I did once use almonds instead of walnuts and it was equally as tasty) and sprinkled the top of the loaves with cinnamon and sugar mixture (the kind you buy at the store if you are in a hurry works well or you can mix 1/4 cup white sugar with 1-1 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon) before putting them in the oven the first time. I also used wax paper in lieu of the greased cookie sheet. Clean-up was a snap! My mother also suggested if you have a hard time getting it to hold, put the dough in the fridge for an hour.
