Almond Mandelbread

These sliced nut cookies are sometimes called “Jewish biscotti.”


9 tablespoons butter
1-1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup chopped almonds
3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
Garnish (optional): 12-ounce bag chocolate morsels, melted


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Slowly add sugar; continue to mix until light and creamy. Add remaining ingredients, except cinnamon sugar; mix well. Pour out dough onto floured countertop. Form into three 1-inch-high loaves; transfer onto parchment-lined pans. Dust with cinnamon sugar and bake approximately 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Turn oven down to 350 degrees F. When cool, cut into 1-inch slices. Lay slices on their sides and toast lightly, about 5 to 10 minutes. If desired, dip ends of cooled slices in melted chocolate. Let harden on parchment paper.
