Mandel bread (Pesach Biscotti)

Passover Biscotti

For the last few years I have been a personal chef to many lovely families. Each Pesach season I look forward to our family reunion, when I move into their kitchen and whip up their pesach menus.  This recipe for mandel bread has become my most requested recipe. This year alone my team and I have made over 1000. I have been making this for over 20 years, first from my small one bed room apartment as a young married wife, to a making it for all my extended families – my Pesach clients.
