Honey Almond Squares: Perfect for Rosh Hashanah
The original version of this delicious and unique slice was from the kitchen of the late Lena Goldstein, one of the early (and now iconic) contributors to Monday Morning Cooking Club. This is not a traditional Bienenstich (‘bee sting cake’), which is usually made with yeast, but a simpler version with a quick pastry base.
It is perfect for Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), served alongside Middle Eastern fruit kompot.
We shared this recipe with Channel 7’s The Morning Show for Rosh Hashanah 2018.
