According to The 100 Most Jewish Foods author Alanna Newhouse, anyone who's frequented an American synagogue in the past half-century is familiar with kiddush cookies—a motley crew of sweet, pasty mounds, dabbed with chocolate or colored sprinkles—served after Saturday-morning services. This superlative version is cakey, moist, and can be made up to 5 days in advance.
