Hamantashen

Rating: 4.5 stars 69
These are the easiest hamantashen I've ever made! They are a bit sweet, roll out easily and are consumed quickly! My kids don't want to give them to their friends! Traditional fillings are prune and poppy seed. You can use any canned pie filling, whole fruit jelly, chocolate chips, or any type filling your family likes! Be creative with these- we put mini chocolate chips in the dough!

Coconut Macaroons

An award-winning recipe that is simple and full of coconut deliciousness.

Passover Chocolate Chip Cocoa Meringues

Rating: 4 stars 7
An easy to make treat that everyone will enjoy for Passover or year round. Sift powdered sugar over meringues and add fresh strawberries to the dish for a lovely presentation. Works best with mini chocolate chips. Using parchment/cooking paper reduces the risk of burning the bottoms (can use foil instead).

Chocolate Babka

Rating: 4.5 stars 63
A perfect recipe for chocolate babka. Of all of the breads I've baked, my friends love this one the most. It's soft and moist, and the chocolate just melts in your mouth when you bite into a slice. I hope you'll like it as much as we do!

Poppy Seed and Apricot Babka

Ever since I tasted grey poppy seeds in Austria (a specialty from an area called Waldviertel) they are my favorite kind but but they are hard to find; black poppy seeds work just as well. Poppy seeds turn rancid very quickly so grind them just before using, unless you have a source for freshly ground poppy seeds. Use only high-quality, soft dried apricots. Blenheim apricots which are grown in California are hands-down the best.

Amaretti

Rating: 4.5 stars 94
This is the classic Italian almond macaroon. When first baked they are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. As they sit, they get crunchy throughout. Delicious with any fruit dessert.

Cheese Babka

Rating: 5 stars 55
Polish cheese babka like my grandmother served every Easter.

Chocolate Passover Sponge Cake
