Passover is a Jewish spring festival that commemorates the Israelites' liberation from Egyptian slavery. Also known as ​Pesach​ in Hebrew, the momentous celebration will start on March 27 and last for eight days, until April 4. During the first two nights of Passover, a celebratory meal called a Seder will also be served.

Depending on the family, different traditions and dietary restrictions will be observed during Passover. Some will avoid legumes, rice, and gluten products, while others will not. An exception to the gluten rule is Matzah bread, which is bread that hasn't been leavened. Certain families will also adopt a kosher diet during Passover.

With all these diet specifics in mind, we compiled a list of Passover dessert recipes created by Jewish food bloggers. Just make sure you check with your Passover host about dietary limitations and adjust the ingredients if necessary.

This recipe is kosher, gluten-free, and absolutely delicious. Plus, it will look great on your Seder table.
