Bring a Great Plate of Cookies to Passover
Passover is almost here and if you are running out of ideas on what to take, bring an assortment of cookies and make everyone happy. Who doesn’t like a platter of fresh baked cookies? Well if you are in Brooklyn, Circo’s Bakery makes a large variety of cookies that will best suit your Passover celebration. You can show up with any cookie style of your choosing whether it is for the Passover Seder, Yom Tov, or Chol Hamoed Pesach.
Customize Your Cookies in Brooklyn
Make your cookies personal by customizing them for your Passover event. During Passover, Jews refrain from eating yeast because according to the Torah, the Hebrews didn’t have time for their bread to rise in their hurried escape from Egypt. So, unleavened bread is traditionally made at the Passover commemorations today.
Since yeast isn’t eaten during Passover, customize your cookies by using matzo meal. Matzo meal will give your cookies the same fresh baked look and taste. You can of course ask the baker to use special ingredients and customize special shapes for your Passover gathering. You can even ask the baker to create an assortment of cookies, so guests can have options between chocolate chip and coconut. Treat your family and yourself this Passover.
