My mother, gone for a long time now along with the original recipe book, used to make really good mandelbrot, which was a lot like Italian Biscotti. Very hard, crunchy and had hazelnuts in them (I think!). I'm looking for a good, simple recipe to replicate it. I have a fabulous one with chocolate chips, nuts, raisins and cinn/sugar, and while I LOVE those, it's not the nostalgia I'm looking for. Any suggestions?
