Joan Nathan, author of "Jewish Cooking in America," prepares this Passover dessert -- matzo fritters filled with currants, almonds, and apricots -- ahead of time, and crisps them in the oven just before serving. Serve the fritters with prunes stewed in orange juice.
Mandelbrot comes from the German words for "almond" (mandel) and "bread" (brot). Our variation contains pecans instead of almonds. As with biscotti, the dough is partially baked, sliced, and baked again.
