As Passover approached, we set out to find New York's best coconut macaroons. Here are our results. More

American Classics: Matzo 'Crack' S'mores

American Classics Alexandra Penfold 3 comments

Last year I put together a slideshow of Matzo Crack recipes for Passover. This year's post was inspired by a tweet I saw by Serious Eats New York editor Max Falkowitz that went a little something like this: "What to do with Matzo for Passover: Eat with Charoset. Make Matzo Crack. Cry. End of list." Which got me thinking what else in the dessert realm could be done with matzo. Then it hit me. Chocolate covered Matzo 'Crack' would make a great base for s'mores. Break out the Kosher for Passover marshmallows! More

So I kept an open mind as I prepared the chocolate brownie mix with fudge frosting ($3.99). I wasn't expecting over-the-top deliciousness, but I was hoping for a not-too-dense brownie with real fudge flavor and creamy frosting. More

Passover Candy: Manischewitz Pâte de Fruits and Matzo Crunch

Lucy Baker 2 comments

At the end of a large and lengthy Seder meal, the last thing most people want is a slice of leaden flourless cake or a sticky macaroon. This year, in lieu of more traditional baked desserts, try serving Passover candy. The first is a quirky twist on French pâte de fruits using Manischewitz wine. The second is my version of cookbook author Marcy Goldman's famous Caramel Matzoh Crunch, gussied up with coconut and almonds. People refer to it as matzo crack, rightfully so. More

Mixed Review: Manischewitz Passover Coffee Cake

Mixed Review Lucy Baker 13 comments

Here's the thing about Manischewitz coffee cake: it tastes just like Little Debbie coffee cake. It has the same buttery bottom layer, the same crumbly cinnamon topping. It is the definition of a foodie's guiltiest indulgence. Guilty because it's... More
