1 stick butter or margarine, softened at room temperature

3 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
3 cups pecans or walnuts or a combination chopped. (I also have used almonds too)


  1. Cream softened butter and sugar well
  2. Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition.
  3. Add flour and vanilla and stir in nuts
  4. Now here comes the unique preparation: Divide and spread batter into 3, greased 8 x 4 inch loaf pans and smooth out evenly.
  5. Bake in a 350F oven 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. Cool 10 minutes in the pan.
  7. Then carefully invert and cool completely
  8. When cool, slice mandelbrot very thin and place slices on cookie sheets.
  9. Bake 350F about 8 to 10 minutes until slightly brown
  10. Cool completely and then enjoy!
