Not bad for a shiksa, if I do say so myself. Not bad for a shiksa, if I do say so myself.
Number of Servings: 8


    3 matzos, in pieces
    3 eggs, separated; whites beaten until stiff
    scant 1/2 cup honey
    1/4 t. each salt and cinnamon
    Pinch nutmeg
    3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
    Rind of one orange
    Rind of one lemon
    1/4 c. chopped toasted pecans
    3 tbsp. olive oil


Briefly soak the matzos in water until thoroughly wetted and pliable, then drain them thoroughly. Beat together the egg yolks, honey, and seasonings, including rinds. Stir in the matzos. Gently fold in the egg whites.

Layer the matzo mixture and the apples in a well-greased 8" square pan like a lasagna. Sprinkle with the chopped nuts and dot with butter (unless you need it parve -- butter not included in calculation because we always have it parve).

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. If not sufficiently browned, broil for 2 minutes on HIGH.
