“Thank you! Its basically kosher marshmallows with a pretzle stick in the top, and a Hershey kiss on the bottom.  I used frosting to stick the kiss to the bottom.  Then I just used frosting to write the letters on the side. For the platter in the picture, I only wrote one letter on each driedle so the frosting wouldn’t smear.  This year I am setting it up as an activity for the kids to do themselves, which should be a lot of fun!”

Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies by Lisa Bailey

4 Comments 29 March 2013

There is nothing like a fresh delicious chocolate chip cookie. This is why I make the batter and freeze them raw.   I can pull them out and just bake before serving.

Kosher Ingredients: 2 cups cake meal

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 sticks margarine

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 package (12 oz) chocolate chips

Directions

Combine dry ingredients, cake meal, baking soda and salt

Melt margarine in microwave, cream with sugars add eggs and vanilla

Add in dry mixture then chips

Shape into balls and flatten a little (these cookies will remain the same shape after baking )

May freeze at this point

Bake 350 (preheated oven) for 10-12 min do not over bake

Enjoy,

Lisa Bailey

Allegra’s Perfect Hanuka Sugar Cookie Dough Recipe

My sister in law Allegra is famous for her Hanuka and Purim parties. She puts extra special effort into making these holidays exciting for all her kids, nieces, nephews, and all of the extra guests that seem to find their way into her home. This is her favorite sugar cookie recipe. It tastes best when rolled out very thin and topped with fun sprinkles, frostings, chocolate chips, or whatever sugary toppings that you can concoct with your kids. Don’t forget to buy your Hanuka cookie cutter shapes!

My Secret Biscotti Dessert Recipe

3 Comments 12 September 2012

I cannot reveal the source of this great biscotti recipe, because it was given to me years ago by a wonderful woman who wouldn’t want her name announced on the world wide web. Suffice it to say that this recipe comes from the heart of a very special person that came into my life for a very short while. This woman arrived at my doorstep with a basket of chocolate chip AND chocolate – chocolate-chip biscotti PLUS the recipe printed out, PLUS a brand new serrated knife that I should use when making this her crunchy treats. Just as she share her recipe with me, I’m so happy in turn, to share it with you.

Enjoy!!! Marlene

Recipe for Secret Biscotti

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of flour
  • (for a double chocolate flavor- use 1 1/2 cups of flour, and 1/2 cup of cocoa instead of 2 cups of flour)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 package of chocolate chips (not artificially flavored chips!!)
  • optional- add whole or sliced almonds. (whole almonds make the biscotti harder to slice)

Mix all wet ingredients in a kitchen aid.

Mix in dry ingredients.

Spoon and shape onto sprayed parchment paper into 2 long logs.

Sprinkle cinnamon on top.

Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees or until top is not doughy.

Take out of the oven, cook on a rack.

Remove the logs with a spatula and place on a cutting board. (These will break easily so use special care!)

With a long, sharp, serrated knife, slice diagonally for long pretty biscotti make sure to push down gently yet firmly so the slices don’t crack.

Place sliced biscotti back on the baking tray and place in the oven at 325 degrees for an additional 15 minutes.

Bake for an extra 5 or 10 minutes if you like them really crunchy.

Happy Holidays!

No Comments 24 March 2012

Dear Florence, Thank you for sending in your gorgeous party pics! Its amazing that you made all of the desserts and displayed it all by yourself. It totally looks like you hired a party planner! You are fantastic! Marlene

“Hi Marlene!
I love your blog and I’m always checking in for beautiful inspirations!

I recently had my daughter Giselle’s first birthday party and I thought I would share the results. The theme was princessy with lots of hits of pink and royal purples. I made the cake, matching cookies, cake pops, chocolate lolly pops and macaroons all to coordinate with the theme.

I used mirrors and different shaped glass containers for the display. Martini glasses held pink or purple candies, a large square vase doubled as a biscotti cookie jar, smaller vases held pink and purple chocolate lolly pops while two trifle bowls were filled with homemade french macaroons and berry salad. I tied the tall vases with ribbon to match the tulips, one was dedicated to pink and one to purple. ”

Esther’s Chocolate Almond Biscotti

3 Comments 25 January 2011

Watch this authentic Italian grandma knead her biscotti dough. She has all the time in the world and puts real love into that dough!!!!

Brings back memories…..

In Italian, the word “biscotto” means “biscuit” or “cookie.” The root words “bis” and “cotto” literally mean “twice” and “baked.”Bakers shape the dough into a log, bake it, evenly slice it into cookies (hopefully they stay in one long piece), and then toast and turn the cookies again until they are perfect.

Biscotti have a great shelf life of at least a week, but they stay even longer if you seal them in an airtight container in the freezer. They are margarine and oil-free so treat yourself to one after dinner!  Great to keep in the freezer for an unexpected guest!

Thank you Eshter Serouya for the great recipe!

  • 1 1/2 cups whole almonds
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • dash of kosher salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond extract

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

  1. place 1/2 cup of the almonds into a food processor ,grind and set aside.
  2. combine flour,baking powder,salt,sugar. add the almonds. with the paddle attachment beat in the eggs,vanilla and almond extracts.add chocolate chips and remaining almonds.
  3. shape into thin logs and place on greased baking tray. bake for about 30 mins or until golden. remove from oven. when they are warm(not completely cooled),slice thin at a diagonal angle and re-toast for 5 minutes.
  4. keep in airtight container

How to Use A Cookie Press For Fun Purim Cookies

How to Use A Cookie Press For Fun Purim Cookies

2 Comments 16 January 2011

Looks like a new-fangled contraption, right? Truth is, the cookie press has been around for almost fifty years. Want to turn out buttery spritz cookies? How about homemade Milanos? Then you’re going to want to invest in one of these, and you will never have to reach for store-bought versions again.

The science behind the cookie press is pretty simple: fill the tube with cookie dough, and fit one of the metal disks at the bottom. Then, press the bottom of the tube right on to the cookie sheet, and press. When the dough comes out, it forms shapes corresponding to the disks. Flowers, hearts, squiggles, snowflakes – the designs that are available will vary depending on the brand you buy.

You can’t use just any cookie dough recipe here, since the dough has to be the right consistency to fit through the disks. I provide my recipe below, and most cookie presses come with a recipe in the box. For the press to work, your dough cannot be refrigerated. If you do need to make your dough in advance, make sure it comes to room temperature before filling the tube.

So what can you use your new contraption to make? How about a homemade version of those classic swiss fudge cookies from Stella D’Oro? Make the flower shape and then fill the centers with a little chocolate ganache.

What about your own version of Milanos? Two oval shaped cookies, sandwiched together with a little melted chocolate – voila! The opportunities for your new gadget are endless, and any of the varieties would be great to slip in to your Mishloach Manot for Purim. You can top your designs with sprinkles, colored sanding sugars or even pieces of fruit. You’ll get 10 phone calls asking how you made that cool design!

Buy here: Norpro Cookie Press

Recipe: Makes about 40 cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add in the egg, vanilla and salt and beat until combined.
Stir in the flour.
Fill the cookie press with the dough and fit the disk on.
Press the cookies out onto ungreased baking sheets, 1 inch apart.
Bake on 375 F for about 10 minutes, until just lightly golden.
Transfer to wire racks until cool.
Decorate as desired!

Chewy Whole Wheat Fudge Cookies

Chewy Whole Wheat Fudge Cookies

5 Comments 01 September 2010

www.homebakedbyshirl.com.

As an absolute dessert-addict, I am always in search of delicious recipes that can be easily altered to accommodate my ever-present desire to eat healthy. And while I certainly believe that the occasional sugar-flour-butter does a girl good, I try hard to maintain a healthy everyday lifestyle by staying away from processed sugar and flour. That being said, I immediately fell in love with this recipe the second I laid my hands on it. A cinch to make, this divine recipe produces the moistest, most decadent chocolate cookie you can imagine, while using whole wheat flour and maple syrup!

Whole wheat pastry flour – as opposed to regular whole wheat flour (which can often impart too much of a wheat-y flavor and chewy texture to delicate baked goods) –  has a higher starch and lower gluten content, generally yielding more tender results. You can use whole wheat pastry flour the same way you would use regular all-purpose flour in just about any baked good recipe  – the texture will be almost identical.

I love that these cookies are not-too sweet (as I often find cookies to be), have a delightfully creamy texture coming from the whole wheat pastry flour and the syrup, and are unbelievably easy to make. Just one is a satisfying dessert in itself (although that hasn’t stopped me for going back for seconds). These are definitely worth a try!

Also, feel free to play around – these cookies are pretty adaptable. I have used a number of different nuts in this recipe- all with exceptional results. Just make sure to toast them first for the best flavor and crunch (spread on a baking sheet on 350 for about 10-15 minutes). Also, for a lower fat option, the chocolate chips can be omitted, as could the nuts – just be prepared for a pretty flat cookie.

Great for the unexpected Shabbat guests!

Healthy Fudge Cookies

1 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup canola oil

2 tbs vanilla

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

½ cup cocoa (the better the quality, the more chocolaty the cookie!)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tbs instant coffee (optional)

heaping ½ tsp salt

½ (or more) cup of organic chocolate chips

1 cup (or more) chopped, toasted pecans, walnuts, slivered almonds…

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine all of the wet ingredients in a bowl. Add in the dry ingredients, mixing well.
  • Drop cookies in 2-3 inch balls onto the cookie sheet, pressing them down slightly, and making sure to space them about 2 inches apart from each other.
  • Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until spread, but still soft in center. (The cookies will firm up as they cool)

These cookies can be frozen up to a month (if they last that long!).

Ultimate Healthy Double Chocolate Cookies

No Comments 15 April 2010

Have you been eating twice as much chocolate now that studies have shown conclusively that this miraculous bean is actually good for you? It’s certainly more appealing than gulping down a $7 wheatgrass shot with the rest of the aerobics squad at the health-food store. Here, then, is BabyCakes NYC’s ode to cocoa: A tried-and-true chocolate-worshiping recipe with crunchy edges and a soft, chewy center that will put you in antioxidant overdrive. Bonus tip: You can add minced fresh mint to the dough, its delicious!

Makes 36 cookies

Ingredients

1 cup coconut oil

1¼ cups evaporated cane juice

¹/3 cup homemade applesauce or store‑bought unsweetened applesauce

½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract

1½ cups bob’s red mill gluten-free all-purpose baking flour vita

¼ cup flax meal

1 teaspoon baking soda

1½ teaspoons xanthan gum (Bob’s Red Mill brand)

1 cup vegan chocolate chips

 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, evaporated cane juice, applesauce, cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla.

In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, flax meal, baking soda, and xanthan gum.

Using a rubber spatula, carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and combine until a dough is formed. Gently fold in the chocolate chips just until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Using a melon baller, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the portions 1 inch apart. Gently press each with the heel of your hand to help them spread.

Bake the cookies on the center rack for 14 minutes, rotating the sheets 180 degrees after 9 minutes. The finished cookies will be crisp on the edges and soft in the center.

Let the cookies stand on the sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack and cool completely before cover­ing. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room tempera­ture for up to 3 days.
