Mandel Bread, or Mandelbrot remains an Old World favourite. This hip, biscotti-like cookie was brought to Eastern Europe by a large population of Jews who once lived in Piedmont, Italy. The name Mandelbrot descends from the German and Yiddish languages with “mandel” meaning almond, and “brot” meaning bread. Mandelbrot literally translates to Almond Toast. This recipe of Mandelbrot is dotted with chewy marzipan and modernized with crunchy cocoa nibs. Twice bake them for a crunchier cookie or bake them once for one that’s a little moister than its Italian counterpart. I like mine a little crunchier. Include Mandel Bread for your Rosh Hashana holiday meal. Share them with friends and family. Leave me your comments below.
This recipe comes from A Brown Table.
