Aunt Maryann's Famous Almond Citrus Mandelbrot

Submitted by Judy on Fri, 09/14/2007 - 9:09pm.

1 cup sugar
Scant cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
Grated rind of one lemon
Grated rind of one medium orange
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Beat sugar and oil together. Add eggs one at a time. Gradually add
flour. Add rinds. Add vanilla and almonds. Spoon onto a lightly greased
cookie sheet. This recipe makes either two large loaves or three
smaller ones. The batter is very sticky, so don’t try to handle it too
much. Sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350
degrees for about 25 minutes. While warm, cut each loaf into 1/2” to
3/4” slices and turn each slice on its side. Sprinkle again lightly
with cinnamon and sugar and bake about 5 or 6 minutes. Take out of oven
and turn slices to the other side and bake again about 5 minutes. (You
can sprinkle again with sugar and cinnamon if you are really addicted
to a sugar high.)
