Mandelbread I (P, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 72

3 eggs
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
4-1/2 cups flour; or more
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup almond slivers
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Beat eggs and beat in oil, sugar and extracts. Mix dry ingredients, and beat in. Divide in half.

Add almonds to one half, chocolate chips to the other. Divide each portion into 3.

Form each into a long roll, about the length of a cookie sheet. (If dough is very sticky, add more flour as you form the rolls. Flatten slightly, and slice each roll diagonally into about 12 pieces. (Do not separate the pieces.) Mix sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle the rolls thickly with it.

Bake 40 minutes at 350°F. While hot, slice again in the same place. Cool on racks.

For added crunch, put the sliced cookies on end on the cookie sheet, and put back in the oven for about 5 minutes, then cool.

Poster's Notes:
If desired, use all almonds or chocolate chips (use one cup), instead of both.
