Chef John's Classic Potato Pancakes

Rating: 4.71 stars
52

The one and only way to not get perfectly crispy potato pancakes is to not squeeze them properly. More than half the procedure was dedicated to grating, soaking, draining, and squeezing the potatoes. If you don't thoroughly squeeze all the liquid from the potatoes, the pancakes just won't crisp up as well. Top with thinly sliced smoked salmon, sour cream, and fresh dill.

Chanukah Cookies

Serve these cookies every night during Chanukah. Kids have fun decorating them and eating them.

A classic potato latke, you can't go wrong with these crispy hot cakes. Serve with applesauce, sour cream and chopped green onions! Happy Hanukkah!

Hanukkah Star Challah

Rating: 3.67 stars
6

When invited to a Hanukkah dinner, I thought of making something appropriate. Finally we decided on a Challah bread shaped as a 6-pointed Star of David.

Sufganiyot

Rating: 4.5 stars
18

Doughnuts without holes! This is a traditional Jewish holiday recipe; sufganiyot are commonly served during the Hanukkah season.

Slow Cooker Cider Applesauce (No Sugar Added)

Rating: 4.66 stars
73

This spicy applesauce requires no added sugar because the apples and spices are sweet enough on their own. The smell of the apples cooking with the spices makes the entire house smell like apple cider!

Most Amazing Challah

Rating: 4.86 stars
133

I made up my own Challah that is amazing! I have tried countless combinations to finally get it right. It uses quick rise yeast to save you a bunch of time. Enjoy!

Alane's Hanukkah Brisket

Rating: 4.58 stars
19

This brisket will literally fall apart in your mouth. The recipe was given to me by my Jewish friend. We made it for a work potluck and it was a hit.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Rating: 4.4 stars
1052

A soft, chewy, and flavorful sugar cookie. It is very important to chill the dough, as it is too sticky to roll unless well chilled.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Rating: 4.6 stars
4370

This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don't know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!
