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

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!

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.

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.

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.

These are way too decadent for my normal fare, but when I had cookie crumbs that didn't make it as a cookie I had to try it in this recipe and they were so good I had to share it. Just save for special occasions.
