I’ve been on a real Williams Sonoma kick recently. I mean, I’ve always loved their stuff, but recently I’ve been unable to stop myself from making a purchase every single time I walk through the door.

And they were small enough that I would always eat them in 1-2 sittings! But my absolute favorite Passover dessert has always been my mom’s chocolate chip meringue cookies. I always eat so many of them. I just can’t bring myself to stop. They are so good. But now I have for you a cake that will give those cookies a run for their money.
