Some of the traditions we learn as children carry with us through our entire lives. For me, that would definitely be my family’s love of baking, as well as the celebration of Jewish traditions. As the owner of Sweet Sally’s Bakeshop, I am able to honor both.
On Passover there are at leat 13 ways of looking at matzah; Matzah Pizza, matzah lasagne (meat and dairy version), matzah farfel stuffing, matzah brittle, brussell sprouts with garlic matzah crumbs, matzah layer cake, chocolate covered matzah, matzah ball soup, matzah meal chicken nuggets, matzah brei, matzah rolls….. And now, maple pecan matzah “granola”.
Although pecan is the traditional filling for these Southern tartlets, any pie filling can be substituted. For a pareve treat, substitute standard flaky pastry for the cream cheese pastry.
