Passover Recipes

In case you’re on the lookout for some good Passover dessert recipes (sorry not all of them have pictures), I can help you out:

Also, I’m going to try a recipe for chocolate brownies topped with toffee, then topped with chocolate chips, then sprinkled with almonds, then sprinkled with sea salt. If it’s a success I’ll add it to this list.

Now, to answer questions that I always get: Yes, you can use margarine rather than butter to keep the recipe pareve. Yes, you can make the brownies in advance and freeze them. Yes, you should keep the matzo brittle in the fridge because the chocolate isn’t tempered and it tends to melt a little. And yes, you can use imitation vanilla instead of real vanilla.

Stayed tuned for a cookbook giveaway in the next couple of weeks!

    hey, nice redesign!

    i’m always on the lookout for good passover dessert recipes. most of them are not so delish.

    i have a great chocolate cookie recipe – it’s definitely meringuey in consistency, but not at all like a meringue puff/cloud like the kind you buy at Trader Joe’s. Let me know if you would like the recipe.

    I’ve got a recipe for Sephardic style macaroons on my blog. They’re just ground almonds, sugar and egg whites–the only fiddly part is peeling the almonds. They’re chewy and delicious. My favorite sister-in-law loves them–I once gave her a jar full as part of a Christmas present.

    Fabulous blog. I’ll be back. Love the hamantashen photos. In fact, I am busy making a batch tonight from dough I made with the Marcy Goldman recipe– I know Purim was last week, but I’m non-observant–AND I was busy making Easter dinner for my family :}

    I made your flourless chocolate cake last night (as I don’t eat wheat, I decided why wait till passover!). It was soooo yummy. There was so much batter that I was able to make two, and put one of them in the freezer. Hopefully it will keep well!

    Thanks for the recipe.

    I just tried a recipe for Chocolate Pecan macaroons from Cooking Light last night.
    They used pecans for a “Southern” flavor, I used walnuts both because I had more walnuts than pecans, but also because my grandma always had a big bowl of walnuts on the table at Pesach.
    Anyway, my girls loved them, and I love them because not only are they delicious, they are good for my Weight Watcher eating! If you go to Cooking Light’s website, and put in “Chocolate Pecan Macaroons” you’ll get the recipe, or it’s in the April 2008 issue.

    I made the Chocolate Chip Meringues to bring to my parent’s last night for the first night of Passover. Everyone loved them. I even got a request for the recipe. Thanks for posting the recipe.
