    Ducky's Note:

    I was tasked with making desserts for seder and happened upon this recipe. DS was quite excited about it so we tried it. These are to represent baby Moses as he was put into a basket and floated down the Nile River. This recipe was originally found in the Jewish Festival Cooking cookbook. Original recipe says for marzipan the amount of ground almonds is a slightly rounded cup but RZ will not take that. In addition, it says a few drops rose water or almond extract but RZ translates that to 3 drops.
