Dresden Mandelbrot


Mandelbrot literally means almond bread, and is a biscuit similar to the Italian biscotti.

Mandelbrot is usually twice baked, however "Dresden" mandelbrot is only baked once.

I also made some as a plain round biscuit instead of the loaf type that is typical -hence the two types in my photos!

This recipe makes a huge amount, and unless you have a very large family, I would suggest halving it.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 20 servings

Ingredients
3 large eggs
300 g sugar
300 g plain flour
1 tsp ground cloves
tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cacao
250 g almonds

Method
Heat oven to 190 or 180 if fan forced.

Beat the eggs and sugar, and then stir in the flour and spices.

Mixture will be very thick


Knead it well, and add the whole almonds.

Whole almonds added


Mix the almonds into the mixture.

Mixture should look like this now


If it is not thick enough to knead and shape, add more flour.

Put some flour on a surface (I used baking paper) and make a small log.


adding,almonds
Make the log thin as it spreads


I used the baking paper to shape the log, and this quantity made two logs.

Turn the temperature down to 170 or 160C if fan forced, and bake for about 15 minutes

Meanwhile if you have any left over dough, make a few biscuits.

Put biscuits on baking paper to cook


Cook them for only about 7 minutes or until just starting to brown.

When the two logs have cooled down, slice them. If you want them crispy, slice them thinly and bake again for about 20 minutes, however I left mine, and they are delicious.

Now serve with coffee or tea!


finished
These are not too sweet and are a good snack


Even one of my dogs loved these -I turned round and the balance on my plate was gone in seconds!
