Editor's note: This post is part of a series spotlighting different family recipes used by members of the White House staff for Passover.
This Passover recipe comes from my mom. When I was a little kid, I had these Passover brownies at a friend's house. I liked them so much that I had my mom call my friend's mom to get the recipe. She has been making them every year for me since. They are so delicious I would even eat them not on Passover.
