Perfect Passover Treats

It's that time of year again: When I have to put away all the flour and start experimenting in the kitchen. That's right - Passover starts on Monday night, but never fear, I have a bunch of recipes that will make you forget you ever thought you needed flour to make dessert.

1. First up and new this year are these Lemon Meringue Nests. This is actually a family favorite recipe that we eat all year round, which tells you how good it is! Recipe here.

2. From last year: Almond Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies - delicious and cute looking at the same time.

3. Flourless Chocolate Cookies - I'm already dreaming about trying these cookies again - they're rich, chewy and chock full of chocolate flavor.

4. Candied Orange Peel - So simple, so delicious, so waste-free! Perfect for Passover.

5. Flourless Hazelnut Cake with Chocolate Ganache - A real showstopper for the end of your seder meal - also great for snacking at any time!

6. Raspberry French Macarons with Chocolate Ganache - If you're feeling adventurous this Passover, definitely try your hand at making French Macarons. Don't worry, I'll walk you through the whole process.
