Spiked Mandel Bread


July 27th 2011By June Hersh

This traditional German cookie, contributed from Judy Prussin derives its almond flavor from a nice dose of Amaretto, which pairs with a variety of dried fruit and nuts. Mandel bread is biscotti, without good PR. They are a twice baked, stand up to a tall iced coffee, crunchy, chocolaty delight.


Simply Irresistible Rugelach

Simply Irresistible Rugelach

August 28th 2013By Joy of Kosher

Rugelach, meaning "little twists" in Yiddish, originated in Eastern European Jewish communities. The rugelach is something of a hybrid pastry, resembling a small croissant at first glance but boasting the consistency of a danish. To further confuse matters, rugelach are also sometimes mistaken for schnecken pastry which are rolled and sliced like the American sticky bun. Either way, rugelach are in good company in their large extended family collectively known as viennoiseries. Whatever you decide to call them, we highly recommend baking up a batch today!

May 5th 2014By Linda Lebovic

baking chocolate chip cookies with my mother is one of my fondest memories. She never used a mixer. She mixed the dough in an extra large Tupperware bowl with her handy dandy wooden spoon. I would love making the cookies with her.

The Hot Tamales really take these snickerdoodles to the next level. The fragrant sweet cinnamon flavor of the classic snickerdoodle is given an extra spicy cinnamon-y kick by the addition of the spicy candies. These are the perfect cookies for true cinnamon lovers.

These bar cookies taste just like you would expect from a cherished family recipe: homey, comforting and delicious (even if they don’t feature chocolate!). The thick pineapple filling and the nutty crunch from the pecans balance each other beautifully, and the light pastry comes together very easily. I have modified the pastry instructions for use with a food processor.

Ginger Chocolate Cookies

I love ginger bread cookies and when I saw a recipe that added in chocolate it was one of those aha moments. I made them for Thanksgiving and they were the hit of the party. Note that these are of course a special treat and should be eaten in moderation, but using whole wheat flour and two kinds of good quality dark chocolate does help a little with the nutrition value.

Coconut Ambrosia Hamantashen

February 26th 2014By Tamar Genger MA, RD

I add coconut to my regular hamantashen dough and then filled with a mix of orange marmalade and marshmallow fluff for a unique new hamantashen. If you like you can even add a maraschino cherry. I tried using coconut oil instead of margarine and it did work, but it was a little more difficult to manage the dough and get it to shape properly.

Chocolate Meringue Stars with Raspberry Sauce

June 27th 2011By Jamie Geller

Next to Macaroons, I think meringues are probably the most inherently Pesach-friendly dessert you will find. I love when we can take a year-round favorite, and not worry about making special adjustments. Fold in some cocoa powder and serve with a dipping sauce (made from jam and lemon juice) and upgrade these to a fab closer of your holiday meal.
