Thank you for starting this post lil-abi. I was hoping I'd find some help like this. Hope more contribute. TheCraftCat, thanks for the tips on mixes. Could you possibly share your apple tart recipe please.
Here are some of my have to make on Passover recipes.
1 1\2 c sugar
1 c. milk
100 gr bitter chocolate
8 T. Matzo meal (I usually add much much more--just eyeball it)
2\3 c marg. (that is down from a cup from the original recipe)
Almond flavoring to taste
Melt sugar and milk. Add chocolate until melted. Add marg. til melted. Add matza meal, mix then add almond flavoring.
When cool you can shape these into little balls and roll them in cocoa or coconut etc.
I just shape a loaf out of it and put it into a covered dish in the fridge. (I got tired that it took longer to make little balls than it took them to eat the things so we go for loaf.lol)
I've seen lots of these but this is tried and true. I've had lots of people ask for this recipe as I did when I had them for the first time years ago. No this recipe is all over the world.
I make this a day ahead--no headaches. Also this makes a whole lot of matza balls, so beware.
500 gr. matzos
250 gr matza meal (about 2 1\3 cup)
35gr salt (I don't use it--don't tell the hubby)
1 1\2 t. ginger
black pepper to taste
900 gr. warm water
300 gr. oil
Break matzos into small pieces. Add dry ingredients. Mix well. Add warm water and oil. Mix well!!!! Let set a few minutes. Beat eggs together and add to mixture. Mix well. Let sit 3-4 hours or overnight to let flavors marry (or whatever it's called)
You know the rest. Make into balls etc.
I also have had excellent results in freezing these.
Gotta go check my Passover book to see what else I have. It's been a year and I've forgotten..
These two recipes don't really take too long to make. I usually make them "around" other things I'm doing.
