I know there was already a Passover posting, but I thought I'd start a dessert specific thread. Mostly, I'm interested in any great brownie or cookie recipes, preferably simple ones. I just don't have the time this year to beat egg whites and do careful folding . . .
Passover brownies are easy - I use the same recipe I use all year, with a straight substitution of either cake meal or potato starch for the 1/2 cup of flour. Does this affect the texture? Of course it does, but they do taste like brownies and are very much appreciated.
I always used to make brownies for Passsover, but a few years ago I started making these Martha Stewart macaroons. They are so incredibly easy and everyone raves about them every year! I used to make two varieties -- all chocolate and chocolate chunk -- but this year I decided to make only the chocolate chunk. I'm a real chocolate person, but everyone always seems to favor the chocolate chunk.
And to prove how easy they are, my husband, who cooks nothing, can make these.
I've linked the chocolate chunk, but you can search the site for the all chocolate variety.
I have a wonderful recipe that is easy but not very healthful (it's just 8 days, right?).
I promised a few days ago that I would post it. Unfortunately, our home computer is ill with a trojan horse. I will try tonight to download it. If I can't do it by Shabbat, I will post it Monday.
Thanks for your patience, p.j.
