Passover dietary restrictions can really challenge a cook. Celebrating a holiday without being able to use leavened wheat products means that the dessert that marks the end of your Passover feast will often be underwhelming, or, even worse, non-existent. However, a few restrictions on what ingredients you can and can’t use doesn’t have to mean that dessert won’t be delicious. These 11 recipes will show you how your Passover dinner can end in the most decadent way.
