The best kosher for Pesach chocolate chip cookies you can find – thanks to Chava Weiman.
2 sticks margarine
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tbsp orange juice
1 1/2 cup matzo cake meal
1 tsp potato starch
1 tsp salt
8 oz chocolate chips
1 tsp kosher for Passover vanilla extract or vanilla sugar if available
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Grease cookie sheets. Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Add all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until light brown. Yields about 4 dozen.
These are the best. I have made them with shmura matzah meal – the death of Pesach cakes – and they are still great. If you can find kosher for Pesach brown sugar, substitute 1/2 of the sugar with that. People swear I am feeding the chometz when I make them.
I am going to try a white chocolate/craisin/macadamia variation on this this year.
Ooh – please let us know how they turn out!
Maybe next year. My son forgot the chips and craisins in NYC 🙁
I tried these from a recipe I saved from years ago. Unfortunately, there was a huge mistake in the recipe – it called for 1/2 cup cake meal instead of 1 1/2 cups. What a mess! And what a waste of time and ingredients. But I saved the recipe. Maybe I should try again this year with the correct ingredients.
Try it again. These are really yummy.
