Passover Desserts

I know this has been discussed a million times. So does anyone have any good easy desserts. I would love to make something with lemon curd. I just don't want to make anything difficult. TIA

  1. Fill a pie plate with a simple meringue, spreading the center more thin and building up the sides. Bake. Fill with lemon curd.

    Chocolate Dipped Strawberries:

    Melt bittersweet chocolate with some parve margarine or butter over low heat. Stir until smooth. Remove white yomtov shirts from small boys and fancy dresses from small girls. Put chocolate on the table with strawberries or other fresh fruit , and let our people dip.

    Flourless chocolate torte (can be done without the ringform pan, although it is lovely to use one and garnish with fresh raspberries and, perhaps, a simple raspberry sauce or coulis

    Baked Apples - is there anything better than a warm baked apple?

    Fruit poached in spiced wine

    Cheescake for a milchig meal (yes, virginia there are Jews who eat a milchig lunch on yomtov) Make a crust of ground nuts with a pat of melted butter, a little sugar, and a dash of cinnamon.

    Notice that none of these uses matzo or cake meal, so none has that Pesachdik tam.

    1. Are you looking for ideas or recipes ?? I think Adina gave some great ideas, if you want recipes I have some easy, simple but delicious ones I'd love to share. Let me know.

      1. re: ettilou

        I'd love to see your easy simple and delicious recipes. Please share!
        Thanks so much!

      2. It's not lemon, but chocolate mousse is really easy to make if you have an electric mixer. Serve with strawberries. You could probably make a lemon mousse too, and serve with meringue cookies.
        I've made this one before, and it is really nice. Substitute whipping cream with KFP non-dairy whip.

        1. This recipe works well. (I know you asked for lemon curd...but this is what I got)

          Also, I am probably going to hack my old lemon bars recipe, and I will try making the shortbread with oil instead of margerine and cake meal for flour.

          1. pavlova is lovely with lemon curd.
