Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs one at a time. Sift together the matzo cake meal, salt and potato starch. Stir into the batter just until blended. Gently mix in the walnuts and chocolate chips. Chill the dough briefly so it will be easy to handle.
  3. Divide the dough into halves and form each half into a 5 inch wide loaf that is about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool, then slice into 1 inch slices to serve.

Didn't add nuts. Shaved and chopped chocolate instead of using chips. Was easy to make and was an excellent dessert. Will make it again next year.

This was better than our family recipe. I added almost a tablespoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients and was liberal with the cinnamon sugar. (I keep on hand (special, such as Ceylon or Fancy Vietnamese [from Penzey's Spices]) cinnamon sugar made with 2/3 cinnamon and 1/3 sugar. Per our family receipe, when the cooking time was complete, I pulled out the cookie sheets and turned each cookie on its side and baked for 10 more minutes. Then the same on the other side. This makes them extra crunchy and substantial tasting.

I'm going to a passover meal with at least one good recipe!
