These were my dad’s favorite Passover cookie. I’m going to bake up a batch tonight.
- 2 c. matzo cake meal
- 2 c. matzo farfel
- 1-1/2 c. sugar
- 1 c. raisins
- 1/2 c. chopped pecans
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2/3 c. butter, melted (and more as needed)
The “dough” is very crumbly. Drizzle in enough additional melted butter so that you are able to press together a small cookie and it will hold its shape.
Drop by teaspoon, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
For Cherry-Almond: substitute dried cherries for the raisins, omit cinnamon, and add 1/2 tsp. almond extract with the butter.
