Foodie Fridays: Mandelbrot Passover Recipe

Favorite Passover Recipe: Mandelbrot Cookies

Here is a delicious recipe for Passover mandelbrot cookies that looks a lot like Italian biscotti. Mandel means almond but the addition of mini chocolate chips guarantees a sweeter surprise. Like biscotti, you make a dough, slice it and bake it. Also, they freeze well for social emergencies or late night freezer raids!

For those of you who haven't made either here is a link at the bottom to step by step pictures and a recipe not as good as Paula Cohen's from Richard Cohen Inc. our representatives in the New York Design Center.

Here is the delicious recipe:

  • Cream together 2 cups of sugar with 1/2 lb of softened butter.
  • Add 6 eggs, one at a time, and beat after each addition.
  • Combine 2 3/4 cups Passover Cake Meal, 1/2 tsp salt, 3/4 cup Potato Starch.
  • Fold into egg mixture.
  • Add 6 ounces mini chocolate chips and 1 cup chopped almonds.
  • With your hands form into 6 loaves  (2" wide each)
  • Place 3 on each cookie sheet, sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar. 
  • Bake for 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven. 
  • Slice into 1/2 inch diagonal slices while still warm.
  • Enjoy on Annieglass
