So, there is an incredible type of cookie sold as "mandola" at the Italian bakery 'round my way in Brooklyn. As I'll likely be leaving NY soon, and don't want to live without this delight, PLEASE HELP! Googling led nowhere.
The cookie in question is about the size of half a golf ball, dusted w/powdered sugar, and composed mostly of ground almond---very little flour, if any. There are bits of candied fruit in it, as well. It's very soft, almost like a chewy cake, with a barely-chewy crust. Quite sweet.
Does it have another name? Does anyone know how to make it???
