These are absolutely delicious...I followed the recipe closely with some minor modifications. The dough is sticky and they spread so be careful when you place them on cookie sheet. I added extra almond extract (about 1/2 t) and toasted them (after cutting) longer than the recipe indicated. The flavor and texture was unbeatable. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Read More

Perhaps a little bland as is - dipped in chocolate makes a big difference. Read More

Pretty good MandelBread but I thought that they could use a tad more flavour perhaps more almond extract. Cooking time and temp were bang on. I sprinkled these with raw sugar before the second bake. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I've tried this recipe 3 times and love love love it. I guess step 2 is where you add the baking powder? It's a great recipe. I share it with my friends and they keep wanting more LOL. However the dough is so thick that the beaters on my mixer barely turn. If I had a good mixer I'd make this all the time. Read More

I am giving this four stars because the recipe was a bit hard to follow. The cookies deserve five though! Very tasty. First of all read through it a couple of times. Some of the ingredients should be listed as 'divided' so people won't just go ahead and use them all at once. Plus the recipe never said when to add the baking powder! So I added it to the flour after I took out the 1/4 c. that I added to the almonds. I also added the whole 1 1/4 c. of sugar to the dough since the recipe didn't say what to do with the other 1/4 c. unless it meant to use all of that to sprinkle on top before baking if I wanted to (which I didn't.) This dough is very sticky and that should have been mentioned along with what to do about it (I sprayed my hands with Pam spray but a little extra flour might have been ok too). And I certainly didn't get 8 portions that were 8" long and 3" wide. I had 7 portions 6 of which were 8" long and about 2" wide and one portion that was about 5" long. In any case these are really good and I will make them again using the changes I made. One more thing I cut straight across the way I do all my mandel bread recipes rather than diagonally. Read More
