Mandel Braite Biscotti

Mandel Braite Biscotti

We’re on Day 2 of our Holiday cookie recipes. Today, we have Granny’s Mandel Braite. Like most biscotti cookies, Mandel Braite goes great with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or milk. If you aren’t much of a sweets person, cut these cookies a little smaller than traditional biscotti cookies. You’ll get all the flavor and less calories.

These are great cookies, but anything made by Granny is. Do you remember her Granny’s Heavenly Granola Bars? You can’t go wrong with one of her recipes. Try these are see for yourself.
