Taxes done? Just in time for Passover treats

Tonight ends another glorious episode of number crunching for the income tax deadline, just as Passover begins. What a perfect time to offer some Jewish comfort food: Passover desserts. Although they are mostly a tradition enjoyed in the Jewish faith, these treats are delicious to serve any day, for anyone. They can be a little challenging to make because flour and leavening agents are not allowed on Passover. You can substitute potato starch for matzo meal, which is made from ground matzo. This is available in most major supermarkets. Whichever recipes you try, I bet you won’t wait until Passover comes to make them again.
