3. Snickerdoodle Noodle Kugel


Each thick slice of this towering kugel is swirled with cinnamon sugar and is coated with a rich and creamy sauce (similar to a dessert bechemal sauce) that’s simply divine. It’s all topped with a snickerdoodle cookie streusel that’s mind-blowing and will knock your socks off. The not-so-secret ingredient? No Yolks!

5. Vegan Hanukkah Star Spelt Cookies

19 Desserts to make for Hanukkah

Today’s new and improved Vegan Chanukah Star Spelt Cookies are a softer and more melt-in-your-mouth-ish version of last year’s recipe. They use spelt flour, so they are not gluten-free, but spelt is a low-gluten grain which personally sits well with me (unlike wheat).

6. Hot Magen David Buns

Rich, fruity, spicy & delicious, each of these buns sports a magnificent Magen David on its golden, shiny top. Enjoy them warm, cold or toasted. (Parve)

These buns are wonderful hot from the oven, or warm with butter. Or cold. Or split and toasted and spread with butter and honey. Oh yum. To be honest, you can put just about anything on them, they’ll still be delicious.

12. Bubbie Ruth’s Mandel Bread

19 Desserts to make for Hanukkah

The word mandelbrot means almond (mandel) and bread (brot) in both German and Yiddish. In America, these tasty little cookies are known as mandel bread. Typically mandel bread are twice-baked, which makes them crispy and crunchy. They’re perfect for dipping in your tea or coffee. Because most of the moisture is baked out of them, they also have a fairly long shelf life.

17. Crisp Hanukkah Dessert Wraps

19 Desserts to make for Hanukkah

I’ve had great fun experimenting with fillings for these wraps. When developing recipes, I try to keep an open mind by asking myself, “What if …?” What if I added raspberry jam, so they would taste like little jelly doughnuts? Or what about a blintz filling, because blintzes are popular on Hanukkah? Or how about filling them with chunks of chocolate, or peanut butter, or bananas? The more I played, the more I realized that almost anything is delicious when enveloped in a warm, crispy golden wrapper.
