Mandel Bread

Mandel Bread is a twice-baked biscuit, much like Italian biscotti, which is the perfect ending to a comforting Shabbat meal. Enjoy it with a cup of tea or coffee as you wind down from the day. ☕🍪

6 / 10
cook time:
50 min
Sugar 1 Cup
Vegetable oil 1 Cup
Large Eggs 3
Vanilla extract 1 Tsp
All-purpose flour 3 Cup
Baking powder 1 Tsp
Kosher salt 1/2 Tsp
Chopped almonds 1 Cup
Optional: 1 cup of chocolate chips or dried fruits for extra flavor
Step 1
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2
In a large bowl, mix the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
Step 3
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture.
Step 4
Fold in the chopped almonds (and chocolate chips or dried fruits if using).
Step 5
Divide the dough into two and shape each portion into a log. Place these logs onto your prepared baking sheet.
Step 6
Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until the logs are lightly browned. Let them cool slightly.
Step 7
Cut the logs into slices, and place them back on the baking sheet with the cut side down. Bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Enjoy this delightful Mandel Bread at the end of your Shabbat meal or anytime you need a sweet treat. Bete'avon, or as we say in English, bon appétit! 🌟🥖🍪
