Mandel Bread Recipe
I seem to have lost my favorite Mandel Bread recipe and while there are several online, I'd like to find one that someone has made and likes. Does anyone have one to share? I love these cookies and hope to get a recipe in time for the holidays. Thanks for your help!
Sorry I am not familiar with the recipe you are asking about. Mandel Bread recipe? A bread or cookie?
It's called Mandel Bread, but it's a cookie. Usually the shape of biscotti.

Just did a Google search. There are several recipes out on the internet. Hopefully you will find one that matches what you had. Some are Kosher too.
I know there are several online, I just want one that someone has tried before. Kosher doesn't matter to me....I'm not Jewish. :-)
