Moist Holiday Honeycake

Rating: Unrated
Spiced fragrant honey cake is a tradition on Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year, which generally falls in September). Unfortunately, most honey cakes turn out to be dry, brick-like things, inedible except with a hot beverage. Some call honey cake the fruitcake of the Jewish people. BUT NOT THIS ONE! This cake is genuinely moist and yummy. It will serve about 12 guests at a holiday meal, but I promise that your family will chisel away at it until it's gone before the morning comes.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

A moist and flavorful recipe that makes a large quantity of cake. I have been hounded to make this cake time and time again.

Passover Chocolate Torte

Rating: Unrated
Garnish with a sprinkle of sugar and some strawberries! The center will be a little fudgy tasting! There are never any leftovers to worry about.

Cardamom Rose Meringues

These light, fluffy meringues with the delicate flavor of rose are enhanced by a kiss of cardamom.

Easy Purim Hamentashen

A relatively easy recipe for both the cookie and the fillings. Kids will have fun kneading, rolling and pressing the cookie cutters. This includes instructions for milchig and pareve cookies.

Samoan Panikeke

Rating: Unrated
My brothers and I used to eat this when we were younger. They're a lot like doughnuts but with the added fun of topping them with your favorite toppings. After a while of not having these, I started making them on my own for my family, and I enjoy them as much today as I did back then!

Inspiration and Ideas

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Rating: Unrated
I love sugar cookies that are crisp on the outside and very chewy on the inside. Do not try to roll these cookies out, they are meant to be shaped or dropped. This recipe can easily be made into snickerdoodle cookies by rolling the dough in cinnamon-sugar before baking.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Rating: Unrated
The red and green make a great Christmas cookie. Have used other nuts instead of pistachios with success. If your pistachios are salted, omit the 1/4 teaspoon salt from the recipe.

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Rating: Unrated

Apples rolled in flour tortillas. VERY delicious, easy and fast to make. Substitute apples with peaches or cherries if desired.
