This cookie/cake like treat is wonderful at anytime of the day, week or month. You don't have to be Jewish to eat it or make it! It is really simple to whip up and it's great to let the kids help. I'll tell you all a family secret...my Mom makes a different type of a Mandel Bread recipe which I always loved until I tasted this recipe. After eating both, there is no doubt that this recipe is the winner, hands down!!
