Chocolate chip cookies for Passover

Martha's book has the best cookie recipes, although some are just too fiddly for me. This doesn’t happen to be one of the fiddly ones, though! Beautiful chocolate chip cookies that are made with matzo and matzo farfel meals. Good quality dark chocolate. Yum :-) I love this book, and I highly recommend it. When it first hit our public library, I had to fight off a lot of people to even get a look at it!

Martha’s recipe is available on the Martha Stewart website. My only additional suggestion is that you chill the dough before rolling and baking to keep it from spreading too much.

Chocolate Chip Cookies for Passover
Makes 2 dozen

1 cup matzo meal
1 cup matzo farfel
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup nondairy semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together matzo meal, farfel, sugars, and salt. Whisk together eggs, oil, and vanilla in a small bowl. Stir egg mixture into sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
2. Roll dough into 1-3/4-inch balls; space 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until golden, 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks.
