  • 6 matzo ground into course crumbs
  • 1/4 cup matzo meal
  • 2 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter melted
  • 1 pound fresh or frozen fruit (such as blueberries and strawberries)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 lemon zest and juice


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a bowl, mix together the crushed matzo, matzo meal, both sugars and ground almonds.
  • Melt butter and add to matzo mixture. Toss with a fork or your fingertips to combine.
  • Line a medium size baking dish with parchment paper and add 1/2 of the matzo mixture to the bottom. Press down and on the sides of the baking dish and set aside.
  • In a food processor, add thawed fruit and pulse a few times until it is a "chunky" puree. Add fruit to a bowl along with lemon zest and juice and almond extract. Pour mixture on top of matzo mixture and then add the other half of the matzo mixture on top.
  • Bake crumble for 35-40 minutes until fruit begin to bubble and topping is lightly golden brown.
  • Once done, it will be very hot. Let cool slightly then serve with fresh berries and a dollop of Greek yogurt or whipped cream.
