I used to be terrified of Passover baking until I came across a flourless cookie recipe that blew my mind. This recipe for Double Chocolate Nut Cookies saved Passover! You may think I am being a little dramatic, but baking for Passover is tough! A dessert that is “good enough for Passover” is just not good enough for me. I pride myself on serving up delicious desserts at all times, no exceptions, no excuses. I am currently on a mission to develop at least one delicious treat every Passover. I am excited to share my recipe for chocolate chip cookies with you!
I developed this recipe one night and was eager to test it out. I took out my new pink Kitchenaid and mixed up a batch of dough.
The cookie dough looked perfect, just like regular cookie dough, so I put them in the oven.
They came out of the oven looking great. Yes, that is a matzoh oven mitt. It’s not Passover until I pull out my matzoh oven mitt! Now the final test; how did they taste. Delicious! If I hadn’t baked these with my own two hands, I would not have believed they are Kosher for Passover!
The secret ingredient in these cookies is vanilla pudding mix. It gives the cookies a great texture and flavor. Every Seder (traditional Passover meal) should end with these cookies.
These cookies are great because they are Kosher for Passover and non-dairy. Happy Passover from my little slugger!
P.S. What are you baking for the holiday?
- 1 cup margarine

- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ¾ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the margarine, brown sugar and sugar.
- Add the eggs one at a time and mix until combined.
- With the mixer on low speed add in the matzoh cake meal, potato starch, vanilla pudding, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined.

- Using a 1½ Tbs. size cookie scoop, drop the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are slightly brown for a soft and chewy cookie. Bake 12-15 minutes for a crispy and crunchy cookie.
