Law & Butter

Well it’s that time of year again!  Time for my favorite holiday: Passover.  A time to gather with family and friends, eat, drink a ton of wine (Manischewitz if you can handle it) and basically enjoy one of the best foods in the world, Matzo Ball soup.  Oh, I will be posting the soup sometime this week.  Don’t you worry.  But until then, it’s time to put away the flour and the leavening agents and get down to some kosher for Passover dessert. 

Every year I try to experiment with new recipes for the Passover Seder.  Although the tried and true will be making an appearance on the blog this week, I wanted to start off by bragging about what should be an amazing kosher for Passover torte (cake) I made.

Almond Macaroon Torte with Chocolate Frosting”

With limited adaptations from Smitten Kitchen

It is an intermediate level cake, only because it does require folding, weighing of ingredients and a steady hand.
