Rosh Chodesh Nissan

March 22 (Sun) Note the time change: 3 p.m.
Rosh Chodesh Nissan will be celebrated on Sunday, March 22 at 3pm in the Beth Ami Social Hall and Multi-Purpose Room. Since Pesach is a mere 2 weeks away, we’ll share Passover foods and recipes … and “tricks of the trade.” Bring a little something you and your family enjoy … and the recipe that others can use. In preparation of the search for chametz, we’ll also collect any unopened crackers, cookies, non-perishable goods that you’d like to donate to needy families.

All Jewish women are invited, regardless of affiliation (or non-affiliation). Come and have a good time. Get into the spirit of the season!

    Here’s the macaroon recipes:
    Sephardic-style macaroons

    3 cups Trader Joe’s almond meal
    1 cup white sugar
    3 large egg whites lightly beaten just enough to mix, not whipped.

    Mix the 3 ingredients. Drop by teaspoons onto parchment on cookie sheet, leaving 1/2 inch between. Bake 12 to 15 minutes at 325 degrees until lightly brown.

    Ilana Amini’s walnut cookies

    4 extra large egg yolks
    1/2 cup sugar
    3 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
    grated rind of one lemon (optional)

    Beat egg yolks with sugar until thick and almost white. Mix chopped nuts in, drop by teaspoons onto parchment on cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches between cookies.
    Bake for 10 minutes at 325 degrees until dry and firm. Remove from cookie sheet when cool.

    Instead of all nuts, you can use a mix of nuts, dried fruit like chopped dates or apricots, chocolate chips, candied ginger…
