Mandelbrot—Updated version: Chocolate Shot Biscotti
Grandma Rae's red cookie tin (she also had a blue one).
1 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces chocolate shot (jimmies, sprinkles)
6 ounces slivered almonds, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla
cinnamon and sugar
Beat eggs, oil, and sugar until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt and continue to beat with mixer until dough is smooth. Add chocolate shot, almonds, and vanilla.
Chill dough at least 8 hours.
Form into rolls (like play-doh snakes) and place on a cookie sheet leaving ample room between rolls. 3 rolls fit across a standard cookie sheet.
Bake @ 350º for 30 minutes. Slice on the diagonal. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake again @250º for 1 hour.
With a standard mixer, the recipe can be doubled and will still fit in the bowl.
