Paleo Pecan Passover Cookies

Wheat-free * Dairy-free * Gluten-free * Vegetarian * Parve * Paleo ~~~


These are the cookies that my friend Dori always used to bake for Passover.  They’re a real hit and so easy to make it’s embarrassing.  Like the macaroons last week, these are very sweet.

I don’t know about you, but I am knee deep in Passover preparations so I will keep this post short.  Hope you’ll forgive me.

Paleo Pecan Passover Cookies

I think you could make these with walnuts or hazelnuts instead of the pecans, but I’ve never tried it myself.

1 cup ground pecans

1/2 cup maple sugar or light brown sugar

Pinch salt

1 egg white

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.  In a medium bowl, stir together the pecans, sugar, and salt. Add the egg white and lemon juice.  Stir until combined.

Form into 1-inch balls and place on cookie sheet.   Press a pecan half into each pecan ball.


Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to rack to cool.


Makes about 14 cookies
