This terrific recipe for Chocolate-Cranberry Mondelbrodt was submitted by Barbara Winn of Deerfield, Illinois USA.
3 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons grated orange rind
3 tablespoons lemon rind
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup dried cranberries
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- Blend together the eggs, oil, sugar, instant coffee granules, grated orange rind, lemon rind, orange juice and lemon juice. Then carefully add flour and the baking powder. Carefully beat in dried cranberries and chocolate chips.
- Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
- Form 2 long logs on the greased cookie sheet; each log should resemble a long sausage shape and allow space in between to allow for small degree of spreading during baking.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 325°F (160°C) for 35 to 45 minutes or until top of each log is medium brown. Remove, cool, then slice. Each log usually gives about 12 to 14 slices. Recipe freezes well.
