OMG! These were the BEST! These Passover Mandela’s bread reminded me of my grandmother’s. Delicious and easy to make. Thank you so much for a new recipe that will definitely be one for every Passover.
i just made the mandelbread mixture and it is dry. i’m going to let it sit overnight in the fridge in a covered bowl. if i made it now, it would all crumble apart. the directions are super easy. i know i didn’t make a mistake. do i need more oil tomorrow if it is still dry?
i see there is another reader that posted the same comment. i added 1/4 tsp of baking powder and a pinch of salt. if you have any tips, pls let me know.
thank you! excited to eat this!
The recipe is for a crunchier mandel bread. It isn’t really a soft one. Not sure about adding the extra baking powder. I have made this recipe dozens of times and it never disappoints, but it is a Passover recipe – it won’t be moist. LOL
Thanks for posting this recipe. I love finding new recipes, especially for Passover!
Do you spray the pan with non stick spray, put oil on the pan, use parchment paper, or leave the pan dry.
Great question. I actually use a silicon baking mat (my favorite thing ever!) But, you could easily use parchment paper!
Such a great recipe for Passover and all year round. Very easy to follow and really delicious.
Going to make this for passover this year. I only have avocado oil. Do you think that would be ok? Thanks!
Can these be made with almonds instead of walnuts?
I haven’t tried Almonds! But I would imagine that it would work!
I’m in love with this recipe. I’m definitely making again even after Passover! I’m wondering how many cookies do you consider a serving because the recipe says 24 servings and I definitely make more than 24 cookies in one batch.
It really depends on how you cut it. I could see how you could easily get more than 24 out of it!
Thank You FOR Sharing 👍🏼♥️It LOOKS Great ❗️G-d♥️Bless 😊
Hello, WOULD USING ALMOND FLOUR BE A OPTION
I am so sorry, but I haven’t tried using almond flour yet! If I do I will for sure circle back!!
Thanks for the recipe! I’m going to make for Passover this year, sounds yummy. Do you bring the dough to room temperature before baking the loaves? Or do you put the loaves in the oven cold after removing them from the fridge overnight?
No you do not, just form it into loaves and then bake.
