Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies

Times

  • Ready Time : 0 min

Servings

3 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup margarine (2 sticks)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup matzoh cake meal
  • ¼ cup potato starch
  • 1 pkg. vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the margarine, brown sugar and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time and mix until combined. With the mixer on low speed add in the matzoh cake meal, potato starch, vanilla pudding, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined. Add in the vanilla and chocolate chips. Using a 2 Tbs. size cookie scoop, drop the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are slightly brown for a soft and chewy cookie. Bake 12-15 minutes for a crispy and crunchy cookie.

Happy Passover!

    The cookie recipe looks great but do you have any ideas on substitution for the cake meal? We do not eat gebrokts and therefore do not use cake meal.

  2. Can I use use butter instead of margarine?

    • avatar says: mposner

      I’m going to try it. I substitute butter for cookies most of the time.

  3. Dkny, try leaving out the matzah cake meal but increase the potato starch to 3/4 cup. I haven’t tried this but it should work well.

    Kbrown, you can definitely use butter instead! Those cookies will be out of this world!

    Let me know how everything turns out!

  4. we don’t use margarine for Pesach
    how much oil would be substituted?

    Thanks so much can’t wait to make
    them.

    • You should use the same amount of oil as margarine- 1 cup. The dough will probably be softer, you might want to chill the dough before baking ifit’s too tough to handle.

  5. Could someone tell me what kind of pudding is used in this recipe? Thanks

  6. Hi Melissa,
    We’re having company for Pesach who are watching their sugar intake. FYI, I used Xyletol for the sugar and sugar-free vanilla pudding—it came out great! I did not have to refrigerate it first…Of course, I’m storing it in a Tupperware Modular container to maintain its optimum freshness! I’m predicting I will have to make more on Chol Hamoed!

    • Rochelle, that’s a great tip! Thanks for sharing, I will have to try these modifications for my family!

    these are by far the BEST KFP chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had!!!!! thank you so much for posting!!!!!!

  8. I have to say these were absolutely amazing and don’t taste like passover cookies at all!

    If you are looking for a fun dessert, we took some of the cookies and made ice cream sandwiches out of them and then stuck them in the freezer to harden. So yummy!

    We are having Passover dinner at my church this coming Sunday and will be having some Jewish friends attending. This may sound like a crazy question, but I am not familiar with all of the kosher rules and want to make sure I do not offend anyone. I was told that using instant puddings was not kosher. Is this not true? Would this recipe be a good one to use for our Passover dinner?

    • Instant pudding is okay for Passover as long as it is a kosher for passover pudding. It is a great recipe.

    We made these last year and they were amazing. Nobody could tell they were KFP! Couldn’t wait to make them again this year but now I’m seeing that the recipe calls for an electric stand mixer, which I have at home but not at my parent’s where we are now out-of-state. Is the the stand mixer really necessary, or could we use an electric hand one?

    Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies, i saw someone’s comment to replace cake meal with another 3/4 cup potato starch, has anyone tried this out for non gebrokts and if it came out just as good?

    There’s a Passover Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe I would like to make. One of the ingredients is 1/4 cup Potato Starch. What can I substitute for the Potato Starch? Is there another recipe that doesn’t have Potato Starch?

    • I don’t know about other recipes. You can try leaving out the potato starch, but it’s really there to hold the cookies together. I replaced the flour in the recipe with a combination of matzah meal and potato starch and found the results to be perfect. Good luck!

    AMAZING!!!

  14. Just made these and I know they won’t last long! They are delicious!

  15. I followed your recipe and it came out as moist as an all-year recipe. I can’t thank you enough.
