The kids and I are in Baltimore for most of Pesach, which means that I get to raid my mother’s recipe box. You know, the kind that’s jammed packed with stained 3 x 5 cards and newspaper clippings, all bearing the secrets to the foods of my childhood.
Since there’s still time, and you probably have cake meal to spare, try these unnamed jelly-matzoh-thumbprint cookies, which I loved as a kid, and still think are pretty good (for Passover, that is.)
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. cake meal
2 T potato starch
1/2 c. shortening (I used butter, can’t stand Passover margarine…)
mix ingredients together. form dough into balls ~1.5 inches diameter. roll in white sugar. press a thumb sized hole into the middle of each cookie and fill with jelly. bake at 375 (preferably on parchment) until done (10-15 minutes?)
