"biscotti-like" news and stories
When I called my mom for cookie recipes that were appropriate to Hanukkah, she said that she didn't think cookies were particularly big during Hanukkah. Then she dug out her Jewish Festival cookbook (from 1953) in order to confirm her suspicion. Not content with that answer, I put out a call to some of my friends to see if anyone had their own traditional Hanukkah cookie recipe. My friend Megan responded with her grandmother's Mandelbrot recipe.
It's a good cookie, sort of like a Jewish biscotti (only much gentler on the teeth). I especially like the fact that the way to get those streaks of dark in the light is by taking out some of the batter and stirring in an insane amount of cinnamon. It leaves the cookies highly flavored but not overpoweringly cinnamon-y. Check out the recipe, after the jump.
