“We had this kugel at seders when I was a child. It has been hidden away for years. Last year we broke it out again and it was a nice addition. Recipe is for a 9 or 10-inch square dish but can easily be doubled into a 9x13-inch dish. Farfel can be substituted for the matzo but I don't know the conversion factor. The original recipe called for a lot of salt and sugar. The amounts can be reduced per one's own taste. Any flavor pie filling may be used. I have had both apple and cherry flavors and both are quite tasty.”
