"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." — susan yale

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.
I found that I needed to add more flour since the batter seemed a bit runny (from all the oil).
Other than that, they were great. Like biscotti.
