Make Mandel Bread ("Brodt") for Hannukah and Christmas with Me!

Make Mandel Bread ("Brodt") for Hannukah and Christmas with Me!

One of my favorite holiday treats is Mandel Bread. I've made mandel bread since I was a child with my mother. Today, it's a tradition in our house to make multiple batches and deliver them to our neighbors for Christmas and Hannukah. Mandel Bread or "Brodt", as I knew it as a child, is a cookie popular with 19th century eastern European Jews. It is a softer version of the Italian, Biscotti known to keep and travel well, making it a wonderful gift.
