Passover Fruit Crisp

Let the Passover recipes continue! I made this fruit crisp for seder and am quite pleased. I used gluten free farfel (once again… as expensive as gold) but well worth it.

This is actually much better than regular. It kind of tastes like saltines.

I made this ahead and baked it at 325 or 10 minutes then placed it in the fridge. If you choose to do this finish baking it at 425 for 15 minutes.

If you want to serve immediately bake at 425 for 20 minutes (monitor).

Passover Desserts Done Right

Jelly rings, hard marshmallow chocolate things, “fruit”slices, dry cake, and the delightfully fatty macaroons… quite the array to choose from. If you are unfamiliar with each of these desserts, call yourself lucky. I love the tradition of Passover but MAN… the dessert choices aren’t so awesome.

In years past I have made caramelized chocolate matzo and I have every intention of making it again this year, however, I needed to spice things up this go around.

I love the coconut date rolls from the bulk section of Whole Foods. I buy them from time to time because they are a great dessert replacement. I have been thinking about making them but was unsure as to what to do. While in the kitchen today I was fiddling around and finally figured out how to make these awesome little treats. What’s even better is that they are Passover friendly!

I made a batch to bring to seder and am excited to share!

Roll the dates into small nuggets. They can get quite sticky but once you put the coconut on them you can manipulate them more.

Not the most attractive food :)

Roll nuggets into coconut shreds and coat.

For cashew rolls, dice up cashews and add to the rolling process. You can purchase Kosher for Passover nuts at Whole Foods.
