Passover Jam Thumbprint Cookies


These delicious cookies are perfect for Passover since they use potato starch and matzoh meal instead of flour. The recipe was given to by Kellie Head, the chief mom at Parenting Humor, a fun site for parents.



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in bowl of electric mixer for about 10 minutes until creamy.
  3. Add eggs and beat 5 minutes more.
  4. Sift together matzoh meal, potato starch and salt. Add to batter. Mix in lemon juice and peel. Form dough into 1-inch balls, and roll these balls in the finely chopped nuts. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart. Make a small indentation in center of cookie with thumb.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. Remove from oven and press down centers to keep indentation. Cool slightly before serving.

Makes about 8 dozen.
