This "cake" pie is Parve & Kosher for Passover. I had it the first time in Israel when we were invited to friends of my Parents for lunch during Passover. Back in Vienna where we live my kids ask me to make it every week!! I end up making it at least once a month just to have peace but it is truely delecious & everyone loves it. The name of the lady who made the cake where we were invited was Phyllis & this is her recipe.
This is a decadently delicious Brownie dessert cake that happened by accident when I couldn't find my 9x9 square brownie pan. This is for the devoted "Chocoholic". The addition of instant coffee really intensifies the chocolate flavor (a trick I learned from the Food Network). Use real butter and not margarine because margarine contains more water than fat and it is the fat in butter that helps to hold the cake together and moistens it. Otherwise the excess water in margarine will evaporate in the oven's heat, leaving your cake much drier in texture.
Calla lillies are one of my favorite flowers. These cookies require a little more work than just mixing and dropping from a spoon, but they make such pretty little cookies that look just like calla lillies.
This is truly an amazingly delicious dessert. As my husband has been known to say, "One piece and you're in paradise, two pieces you think you've died and gone to heaven, three pieces and you throw up!"

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/09/dining/09chip.html?_r=1&ref=dining&oref=slogin I've made these twice since the article was published a week ago. These cookies are awesome. I couldn't find the chocolate ovals at whole foods, so I just used bittersweet chocolate chips and they were great! I thought the salt on top would be weird but I tried it both ways and liked it better with the salt. Go figure!!
