Cousin Selmas mundle bread cookies
this recipe actually came from my cousin, Selma.
1 cup sugar
three fourths cup shortening, preferably crisco
one teaspoon baking powder
one teaspoon vanilla
two cups flour.
one cup chopped nuts. the finer the better.
if you want chocolate cookies, one fourth of the two cups of flour should be cocoa.
combine the sugar, eggs, shortening, baking powder and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
add to this the flour and the nuts.
when mixed well, chill in fridge for two hours. [it ain't necessarily so] one hour and a half should also be fine.
on a greased large cookie sheet, roll out long cyllinders, then slightly flatten each.
for large biscotti, do three across, using entire recipe.
for mine, I made many cyllinders. be sure they are spread apart. fairly far, as they slightly raise in baking.
bake for twenty five minutes in a dg. 350 oven.
take out and slice with a regular table knife.
sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar if desired.
then, place back in the oven or under the broiler to brown.
the broiler only takes two or three minutes, and isn't advised.
the moderate oven will take ten minutes. dg. 350 for this process, too.
