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 wish it didn't have so much oil in it but that must be why it has such a light crumb. Be prepared to chill the dough and use only a small amount on each "loaf" because it will spread out on the pan. I followed the recommendation to use waxed paper but during the second bake, i used parchment. A finished mandel bread cookie is only about an inch high but when they spread out, it might be six inches long which is longer than i'd like, hence my advice to make small loaves. They freeze well after baking too. And it's the perfect accompaniment to your morning coffee. Variations you might try: pistachios, dried cranberries, dip them in chocolate like biscotti, toffee chips, etc.
