Cinnamon Donut Holes for Passover

Cinnamon & Almonds that melt in your mouth, is exactly what this recipe is. Reminiscent of a Moroccan cookie that my grandmother was famous for, I tweaked it for Passover and called it a “donut” hole. My 4 year old daughter cant get enough of these, and by the many smears of confectioners sugar that are usually all over her clothes and face on Passover, I know her hands were once again in the cookie jar.  I really cant blame her, these cookies should come with a warning label, you will be popping them in your mouth all holiday long.

This recipe is from the #1 Best Seller Kosher for Passover eCookbook 4 Bloggers Dish: Passover (Modern Twists on Traditional Flavors)
