Perhaps the most well-known Passover cookie, macaroons come in all flavors and sizes. This baked confection has been described as meringue-like or cake-like, depending on the ingredients and consistency.
The name of this cookie comes from the Italian word for paste, maccarone. That’s because almond paste is typically a primary ingredient.
Most macaroon recipes include egg whites, almonds, coconut or other nuts. And most of them contain sugar. Italian Jews turned macaroons into a Passover dessert because it has no flour or leavening other than egg whites.
Arrange a few types of macaroons on a beautiful round platter for dessert. From almond and chocolate-dipped macaroons to mini macaroons in coconut, chocolate and orange, the Roche Bros. bakery has all the options. You can also skip the arranging – just take home a Mini Macaroon Platter and you’re ready to go.
Also find a large selection of Irene’s Bakery Kosher for Passover desserts in the bakery department. Many of our desserts for Passover are gluten-free, so be sure to ask or check the package.
