In my mind, no meal is complete without dessert.  Chocolate chip cookies, pavlova, ice cream cake, lemon bars, brownies, and more can all be made kosher for Passover.  I love having something sweet as a way to mark the end of a meal.  Passover is a great time to take a break from your usual desserts or it challenges you to find new ways to enjoy your favorite treats.  Below are 25 non-gebrokts recipes for Passover.
