mondel bread

my grandmother's recipe never included chocolate chips,
but i think she'd forgive me for this one little alteration in the old family recipe.
may your holiday be filled with sweetness

I think you could still be called a 'chip' off the old block. They look D-lish!

They look exactly like biscotti. I looked up the recipe, and it sure does suggest a biscotti bake. I learn something new everyday on a blog!

They look delicious, and since I just got up, I think I'll toddle down to the kitchen to see what I can find. Nothing that looks this good, tho!

O my word, O my word! Delicious photo!
Is it a secret family recipe or could you share it?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!

Mondel, biscotti, whatever. I bet they go well with a cup of coffee. Are they hard to make? How about the recipe.

I'm sure she'd forgive you! It seems to be sooo delicious!Adding chocolate, you brought your own piece to the tradition!

I bet your grandmother would not only forgive you, Brattcat, but also appreciate your updating of her recipe... The result seems to be excellent!

I have already seen these, or at least they weren't so different: they look delicious and yummy and I really love the addition of chocolate chips! Recipes need to be renewed!

These biscuits look very similar to our tuscan "cantucci", except they have almonds and not chocolate. They look delicious!
