Passover Dessert

Strawberry-Apple or Rhubarb Macaroon Crumble

7 oz almond paste (about 1 cup) crumbled
1 cup sugar
2 large egg whites

1 lb strawberries, rinsed, hulled, sliced
1 ½ tbsp potato starch (or other starch or matzoh cake meal)
1 Tbsp sugar (or more as you like it)

• In food processor, whirl almond paste & sugar. Add egg whites, cake meal, and salt. Process until mixture resembles wet cookie dough.

• Toss fruit ingredients in large bowl. Obviously you can combine any equivalent quantity of rhubarb, strawberries, and apples as desired.

Bake at 350 degrees until topping browns, 40 to 45 minutes. Allow to stand before serving.
