Honey Snap Biscuits

Recipe by Lisa Goldberg

Honey Snap Biscuits

These are the most delightful, simple-to-make and—best of all—easy-to-eat honey snap biscuits, perfect for Rosh Hashanah (or any time of year). Huge thanks to Carolyn Levitt in Perth for sharing her great recipe with us. We hope to put the recipe in our fourth book—sweet only—due out in 2019. Both the dough and the biscuits

Fried Baby Chicken (<em>Backhendl</em>)

Recipe contributed by Anita Zweig. Anita is the grandmother of a friend of ours, and one of the many highlights of our testing year was going to Anita’s home in Sydney to cook with her. What a delight to meet her and what a privilege to hear her life story. We arrived in the morning

Hot Gingerbread Cake with Egg Sauce

Recipe contributed by Gloria Jacobson Pink. We understand why this is Gloria’s grandchildren’s favorite cake. And why they love the egg sauce almost more than the cake! We had never heard of egg sauce, but once we tasted it, we were sold. Gloria’s original recipe calls for molasses instead of golden syrup. Over many conversations

Aunty Myrna’s Carrot <em>Tzimmes</em>

The recipe calls for butter, but you can use margarine to make it pareve. Our Rosh Hashanah table always

<em>Flommen Tsimmes</em> Brisket

This recipe comes from the kitchen of Jacqui Wasilewsky, Sydney, Australia: “My family ate this sweet brisket at Pesach and Rosh Hashanah. Originally from my grandmother, who was quite secretive with all her recipes, my mother learned it by simply watching and copying. We all think and talk about my late mother when I make

Chocolate Yeast Kugelhopf

Recipe by Lisa Goldberg

Chocolate Yeast <em>Kugelhopf</em>

A gorgeous golden cake with a just-crusty-enough sugary top and a soft slightly bready inside swirled with gooey chocolate. Perfect for afternoon tea, even better served warm for breakfast. It’s too good to believe—just a matter of getting your ingredients ready and following the recipe (with the help of our video) step by step. You
