Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies

I got this recipe from The Shiksa, and it’s pretty solid! They taste just like regular ol’ chocolate chippers. And it was nice to see a familiar favorite that was adapted for the holiday.

The recipe calls for matzah cake meal which, from what I understand, is just finely ground matzah. I’d recommend going out and buying some, unless you really love your food processor. I did make the regular meal myself by just crushing up a sheet of matzah. It added a nice crunchy bite to the cookie.

If you’re looking for a reprieve from macaroonsmatzah bark or flourless chocolate cake (although, what?!), you should definitely give these a shot. They’re sizable, tasty, and quick to whip up.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1+1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1+1/2 cups matzah cake meal
  • 1/4 cup matzah meal (I ground one sheet, it was close enough to 1/4 cup)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I mixed semisweet and milk chocolate, just make sure to use kosher for passover chips to keep them holiday appropriate)

Preheat your oven to 350ºF. You don’t need to grease or line your pans, so just have them ready.

Cream together the butter, sugar, and honey. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until incorporated. Add in the salt with the cake meal and stir until the meal is just about mixed in because you’ll finish it off with the chocolate chips. Not sure how matzah meal reacts compared to regular AP flour, but I didn’t want to take any chances of over-mixing. The dough looked a little grainy, but I kept going.

Portion out 2 dozen cookies on your naked cookie sheets. I used a heaping spoonful from a big spoon – maybe about 1/4 cup of dough for each cookie? I got an even 24.


Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.

Voila! Again, these tasted just like regular chocolate chip cookies, and just as easy to make. The Shiksa advises you serve them warm and with milk 🙂 Can’t argue with that.

What are your favorite Passover desserts? I’m always looking for more recipes!
