It's this time of year we start spotting matzoh in our grocery stores. Go ahead, grab a box; deliciousness awaits! Matzoh is a thin,unleavened flatbread that plays an important role in the Jewish holiday of Passover (when eating anything with a leavening agent is strictly forbidden).
Luckily, matzoh is incredibly versatile and a great ingredient in sweet treats. From tarts to crumbles to chocolate bark, here are some of our favorite matzoh desserts.
Move over apple pie, there's a new dessert in town: an apple tart with a matzoh almond crust. This crust is not too sweet or buttery, made with crushed matzoh and almonds. It's nutty and rich without any decadence. The filling is a simple mix of crisp apples tossed with those familiar flavors: cinnamon and brown sugar.
This cake is light and refreshing, subtle sweet and a cool way to end your meal. Layers of matzoh are slathered with a lime and coconut curd, topped with more matzoh, and so on. The entire cake gets a sprinkle of shredded coconut and is frozen until firm and crisp.
