Macaroon Sandwich Cookies

Rating: 4 stars
What do you get when you cross a macaroon with a macaron? A cookie that is truly magnifique! Give the traditional Passover dessert a French accent by sandwiching preserves between two crisp, chewy coconut cookies. Choose tart fruit spreads—we used mango, raspberry, and apricot—to balance the macaroons' sweetness.

Sweet-and-Sour Brisket

When Sarah Carey, our editorial director of food and entertaining, was a kid, holiday visits to her grandparents' house often included her grandma's sweet-and-sour version of classic beef brisket. She recreated it from memory, one bite at a time, using three key ingredients: Chili sauce, brown sugar, and vinegar.

Chocolate Cinnamon-Swirl Bread

Rating: 5 stars
End brunch on a sweet note by slicing into a loaf of this rich, babka-inspired swirl bread. Enriching the yeasted dough with eggs and milk produces a super tender crumb once baked, but not before becoming the canvas for a cinnamon-spiked chocolate filling. To make sure the filling is infused into every pillowy bite, the dough is braided together before being placed in the loaf pan to proof and then bake.  

Roman-Jewish Style Fried Artichokes

Carciofi alla Giudia (Jewish-style artichokes) is a classic and delicious dish originating from the Roman-Jewish community in Italy. To make a batch at home, fry up baby artichokes until crisp for a flavorful treat.

Instant Pot Brisket

Rating: 4 stars
Cozy up to homemade brisket in no time with this recipe that uses the pressure cooking function on your multicooker. With tender slices of brisket, sweet sautéed onions, and perfectly cooked carrots and potatoes, this delivers all of the favorite flavors of a traditional braise in half the time. 

Grated Potato Pancakes

Rating: 3.81 stars
It is important to wring all excess moisture from potatoes to ensure a crisp pancake. If you are uncomfortable flipping the pancake, you may invert it onto a plate, and slide it back into the pan after adding the remaining oil.

Noodle Pudding

Rating: 3.63 stars
This baked pudding is also called kugel. It's made with noodles and often eaten during Jewish holidays. Serve it as a side dish with meat and vegetables.
