How to Make a Kosher Cheesecake Crust for Passover
Cheesecake makes a wonderful kosher dish for Passover and other Jewish holidays. The only tricky part of the dessert is how to make a flourless, grain-less crust.
One idea for a kosher crust is to use crushed macaroons or ladyfingers as the main ingredient. Unfortunately, they burn easy, so this is only an option if you are making a no-bake cheesecake.
If you are baking your cheesecake, consider using ground nuts, such as peanuts, cashews or pecans for your crust.
You can also use matzoh cake meal and substitute it for the flour in any crust recipe.
No matter which main ingredient you choose, use about 1 cup and mix with about 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of melted butter. Press the crust into the bottom and about an inch up the sides of a springform pan, and prepare cheesecake as the recipe directs.
Now you can prepare a lovely cheesecake for your family and friends for Passover with no leavened bread or grains. Enjoy!
