(350 F oven) BISCOTTI OR MANDELBROT from Dorothy Malkin

This is a personal favourite. It is easy to make and keeps for a long while if you don’t pig out.


3 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 cup oil

1 tsp. vanilla

3 cups flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 pinch salt

1/2 cup toasted almond flakes chopped

1/2 cup chocolate sprinkles (jimmies?)

Beat the eggs and sugar. Add the oil and the vanilla and beat well. Combine the flour, baking powder cinnamon and salt.  Add 3/4 of the flour mixture to the egg, sugar and oil. Blend well. Now add the nuts and chocolate sprinkles. Blend in the. remaining flour, It will be really stiff. Now shape into 4 logs. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 F for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven.  Slice across in 1/2 inch slices. Turn off the oven. Put the slices on baking sheets and. return to the oven. Leave overnight. They will be crisp in the morning.
