A few weeks ago I received a surprise in the mail, a box of cookies with a note from some friends saying they were joining in on Dorie Greenspans cookiesforkindness project to bake and to share and to be kind just because. How nice I immediately wanted to play along, so I made a double batch of Molly Yehs mandel bread with marzipan and sea salt from her new book, Molly on the Range, one topped with sprinkles, one with pearl sugar. I gathered all of my kindness sharing supplies kraft boxes, tissue paper, bakers twine and set up an assembly line to package the many delicious slices, but it soon became clear that the little ones in the house would not allow me to spread SO much kindness. The sprinkly treats disappeared before I could even think abut a post office run. Mandel bread, also known as mandelbrodt, which literally means almond bread, is a traditional Jewish twice baked cookie originating from Eastern Europe and, from what I gather, is typically softer than biscotti due to a higher amount of oil or butter. In Mollys version, the loaves of dough are coated with sprinkles or pearl sugar AND sea salt just before baking, which makes them particularly addictive, and the inclusion of marzipan creates pockets of intense almond flavor and a lovely softness throughout, which speaks to my soft batch biscotti loving heart. Confession I cant blame my children for preventing me from sharing the cookie kindness Having a jar of mandel bread on the counter has been such a treat every morning, the biggest incentive to prep the coffee every evening before going to bed, just the motivation I need to rise in the dark, tiptoe into the kitchen, and cozy up to the breakfast table before the chaos of the day begins. Mollys book, by the way, is so much fun beautiful, joyful, playful, and creative, just like her blog. There are two amazing giveaways still happening over there if you preorder her book before October 4th one for adorable tattoos, and one for sprinkles.
