This comes from a cookbook published by a local chapter of B'nai B'rith Women in 1963. They offer two fillings, both milk-based and meat-based. You could also use fruit fillings, such as a fruit compote. Note: Zaar doesn't recognize matzah cake meal, only regular matzah meal. The recipe specifies the cake meal.
