Matzo Meal Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 1/3 cups brown sugar (260 grams)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (110 grams)
  • 3/4 cup (6 oz) unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extra**
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup matzo cake meal (or make your own – see note) (140 grams)
  • 1 cup potato starch (potato starch flour) (140 grams)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (or approved Kosher type chocolate)
  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream both sugars with butter. Add vanilla. Blend in the eggs.
  2. Stir in the salt, cake meal and potato starch. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Chill the dough for 1 hour or overnight for chewy cookies, do not chill if you prefer thin, crisp cookies.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Scoop out generous teaspoonfuls of dough or roll marble sized balls. Place on the baking sheets, leaving plenty of room for the cookies to spread (3 ½ inches).
  6. Press down a little if using chilled dough.
  7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes- watch carefully- then cool on the baking sheets for 20 to 30 minutes. Use a thin metal spatula to remove the cookies
Note: (Adapted from a Marcy Goldman recipe)

To make matzoh cake meal, place regular matzoh meal in a food processor and process for a minute or until finely ground.

Original recipe did not include vanilla. It called for ½ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar.
