Perfecting this confection was not an easy feat, but the fifth time was the charm. The result is melt-in-your-mouth goodness that I believe will become a Pesach tradition in your home. Don’t let the caramelized almond flour scare you off. It’s just an extra two minutes of your time, and it delivers huge flavor.


  • 1½ cups almond flour
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup Gefen Walnut Oil
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract can be omitted
  • 2 cups potato starch
  • 1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Set a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the almond flour and sugar. Stir until the sugar melts and the almond flour becomes fragrant, about 2 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Place caramelized almond flour into a large mixing bowl along with the egg, oil, 12 cup confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, potato starch, and salt. Beat until combined into a cookie dough texture.

Shape into 1-inch (212-cm) balls (I used a small scoop). Place on baking sheet at least 2 inches (5 cm) apart and bake for 10–12 minutes.

Roll warm cookies in the remaining confectioners’ sugar.

These cookies freeze beautifully.
