Rugelach

You can make a nut-free version by simply using jam for the filling. 

The dough is very easy to handle if left in the fridge for an hour but overnight makes it harder to work.

 This recipe is from The Food Network 2001 Barefoot Contessa Parties 

Majestic and Moist New Year's Honey Cake

Majestic and Moist New Year's Honey Cake

This is the FABULOUS honey cake Daryl Fridenberg brought to Temple Israel's Break-the-Fast table in 2016 / 5777, and we have been singing its praises ever since.  The recipe is from A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking by Marcy Goldman, and it comes to us courtesy of Daryl Fridenberg.

"I like a New Year's honey cake to be extra moist and sweet, as good a few days later as it is on the day of baking.  This one is queen of the realm -- rich, nicely spiced, and in a word, majestic in taste and stature.  I went through many variations and tasting sessions until I was satisfied with this definitive cake... Like most honey cakes, it is a good keeper and can be made a couple of days ahead." - Marcy Goldman

Chicken Soup

My mother has been making this soup for as long as I can remember.
Sometimes it is brimming with chicken and with fine egg noodles, sometimes Matzoh Balls, often both.
It is a clear golden broth.
It is truly a meal in a bowl. Comfort food at it's best
