The Best Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies

I used to be terrified of baking for Passover, it’s tough! A dessert that is “good enough for Passover” is just not good enough for me. I pride myself on serving up delicious desserts at all times, no exceptions, no excuses and baking without flour makes baking very difficult. I used to just take off from baking over Passover, but last year I decided to take the challenge on. I am currently on a mission to develop at least one delicious dessert every Passover. I am excited to share my recipe for chocolate chip cookies with you!

As I was browsing the Passover baking aisle in the grocery store I came across vanilla pudding mix. I have a recipe for regular chocolate chip cookies that calls for a package of vanilla pudding mix. It makes the cookies soft and chewy. I went home with the pudding mix and put this recipe together. I substituted matzah cake meal for the flour and mixed up a batch of dough. The cookie dough looked perfect, just like regular cookie dough, so I put the cookies in the oven and crossed my fingers. They came out of the oven looking great! Looks can be deceiving though, how did they taste? Delicious! If I hadn’t baked these with my own two hands, I would not have believed they are Kosher for Passover!

These cookies are so great for Passover because they are non-dairy and can be served at any time of the day. They also do not contain nuts like most Passover desserts. Every Seder (traditional Passover meal) should end with these cookies. If you are only baking one dessert this year, make it these cookies. Skip the cake mixes; you won’t be disappointed!

    Can you tell me the size of vanilla pudding mix you use? Also, is it instant or not instant?

    I don’t have a free standing mixer, just an electric hand mixer. Is is ok to use that instead?
