17 Best Passover Cookies (+ Easy Recipes)

Chametz might be forbidden on Passover, but these Passover cookies are allowed!

These flourless cookies will be a big hit at the dinner table. 

Swapping flour for a matzo meal or potato starch allows you to whip up cookie classics.

You can make snickerdoodles, chocolate chips, and even peanut butter cookies.

Whether you want something light and airy or have a serious chocolate craving, these cookies won’t disappoint. 

And if you want to get fancy, you have to check out that French macaron recipe. 

So, bust out the matzo, and let’s whip up one (or all) of these Passover cookies!

1. Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies

Matzo is much more than simple matzo ball soup!

Using a matzo cake meal creates chewy, delicious chocolate chip cookies that are hard to put down. 

These chocolate chip cookies have chewy insides with crispy edges that hide so much flavor.

They incorporate honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and a boatload of chocolate chips.

Eat them after dinner, or snack on them throughout the Passover season!

2. Italian Rainbow Cookies

Nothing looks quite as stunning as these Italian rainbow cookies.

And don’t worry, they’re just as flavorful as they look. 

The cookie dough incorporates nutty almond paste, matzo meal, and vanilla extract. But we’re not done yet!

Between each colorful cookie layer is a thin layer of sweet raspberry and apricot preserves.

It truly takes these beautiful cookies over the top. 

3. Gluten-Free Lemon Crinkle Cookies

These lemon crinkle cookies are just another reminder that summer is right around the corner. 

I love crinkle cookies because they look stunning and are one of the easiest cookies to whip up in a jiffy. 

The recipe combines nutty almond flour with a gentle kiss of tartness from fresh lemon and rolled in powdered sugar.

These cookies are sweet, delicate, and bursting with lemon flavor. 

4. Flourless Chocolate Cookies

In the mood for something decadently chocolatey?

You won’t need flour to create these soft, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate cookies.

In fact, you don’t need many ingredients at all!

This simple recipe utilizes six ingredients, many of which are pantry staples. 

They’re so soft and chewy and walk the line between a brownie and a cake-like cookie. 

5. 5-Ingredient Coconut Macaroons

Coconut macaroons are like chewy nuggets of heaven. It’s hard to stop at just one. 

They incorporate chewy coconut flakes with eggs, honey, vanilla, and salt.

That’s it! It’s such a simple cookie that explodes with bright flavors. And it’s easy to whip up a big batch for company. 

The pairing of coconut and honey delivers the right amount of sweetness that won’t undo your entire diet this spring. 

6. Almond Butter Cookies

While these almond butter cookies are excellent for Passover because they’re kosher, you’ll want to make them all year!

These cookies may taste deliciously sweet but don’t utilize processed sugar.

They earn their sweetness from Medjool dates, making them so chewy!

To take these simple gluten-free cookies over the top, dunk them in chocolate for a show-stopping finish. 

7. Almond Lace Cookies

It doesn’t get easier than these almond lace cookies.

While they look tedious and delicate, they come together in 20 minutes. 

These deliciously crunchy cookies have simple ingredients like potato starch, coconut oil, ground almonds, and Morad Amaretto.

After a quick trip in the oven, they’re crispy and so flavorful. 

For a hint of chocolatey flavors, drizzle melted on top to take these simple cookies over the edge. 

8. Passover French Macarons

Don’t let French macarons intimate you. Even if they crack or spread in the oven, they taste delicious. 

This French macaron recipe is perfect for knocking the socks off your guests.

With a chewy macaron cookie and mouth-watering filling, I promise they’ll be a big hit at the Passover table!

This is one of those kosher cookie recipes you’ll want to make all year. 

9. Coffee Meringues

These coffee meringues are the perfect post-dinner treat when you want something sweet but can’t possibly eat another bite. 

They’re like light and fluffy coffee-infused clouds. Is there anything better than that? 

With a light and fluffy meringue base and rich coffee notes, they’re the ultimate after-dinner (or pre-dinner) snack. 

10. Funfetti Passover Cookies

Funfetti cookies never fail to bring a smile to my face.

With rainbow-colored sprinkles wrapped in a chewy cookie, they’re sure to be everyone’s favorite. 

What makes these simple Funfetti cookies Passover-approved is the flour swap.

It eliminates flour and instead uses matzoh cake meal and potato starch. 

To keep them nice and chewy, adding vanilla pudding ensures they stay nice and soft and boosts sweetness. 

11. Fudgy Chocolate Passover Cookies

Think of these fudgy chocolate Passover cookies as a cross between a brownie and a cake.

They’re deliciously fudgy on the inside with a crispy crinkle crust that’s to die for. 

What l love most about these fantastic fudgy cookies is that they deliver intense chocolate flavors thanks to the secret ingredient: coffee!

Don’t worry, these cookies don’t taste like coffee.

Adding coffee to the mix amplifies the chocolatey flavors and elevates these cookies. 

12. Passover Black and White Cookies

It’s hard to resist these beautiful black and white cookies.

While they’re a bakery classic, making your own at home is super simple.

The Koser sugar cookie is light with a zip of tartness from fresh lemon juice. 

The black and white topping utilizes a simple icing mixture of powdered sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and chocolate. 

13. Dorie Greenspan’s Chocolate Matzo Morsels

Don’t have time to bake? No worries!

These no-bake chocolate matzo morsels are sweet and indulgent and don’t require firing up the oven. 

What I love most about these kosher cookies is that they’re sweet, buttery, and chocolatey!

The recipe has sweet raisins with chocolate butter and crumbled unsalted matzo.

It’s a perfect sweet treat when watching your waistline, and it’s easy to whip up a big batch in minutes. 

14. Amaretti Cookies

These amaretti cookies might be as light as a cloud, but these delicate morsels pack powerful flavors. 

If you love the flavors of almonds, you’ll adore these cookies.

They incorporate almond flour with almond extract for a 1-2 punch of almond goodness. 

They’re light and delicate, and the almond flavors are out of this world. 

15. Fudgy Chewy Flourless Chocolate Walnut Cookies

There are two types of cookie lovers: those that like crispy cookies and those that love chewy cookies. 

If you are a chewy cookie fan, keep reading!

These chewy walnut cookies take like a cross between rich chocolate fudge and brownies.

Crushed walnuts add texture and flavor that pair so well with cocoa powder. 

They’re melt-in-your-mouth chewy, and the flavors are every chocolate-lovers dream. 

16. 5-Ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Calling all peanut butter fans! The time has come if you’ve been patiently waiting for a peanut butter cookie recipe!

These flourless peanut butter cookies deliver intense peanut butter flavors.

The recipe combines brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, chocolate, and peanut butter. That’s it!

They’re incredibly chewy, and these peanut butter cookies are intense without flour. 

17. Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodles are light, chewy, buttery, and so very delicious. And these gluten-free alternatives are just as tasty. 

Instead of flour, the recipe uses gluten-free all-purpose flour with xanthan gum.

The cookies are light and chewy with a gentle kiss of cinnamon and sugar flavors. 

It’s such an easy treat to whip up when you have a lot of people over for Passover, and few will be able to pass over these cookies!

I’ll see myself out.
