Passover is a Jewish holiday observed in the springtime, but this fruity and delectable dessert is good any time of the year. 


1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
1/4 cup tapioca, quick-cooking
4 cups rhubarb pieces, 1/2-inch
1 cup raspberries, unsweetened
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup matzo meal
1 stick of butter (or margarine), unsalted (1/2 cup)
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  lemon sorbet or whipped cream (optional)


1. In a shallow 2-quart baking dish, combine 1 1/4 cups sugar and tapioca. Add rhubarb, raspberries, and lemon juice - mixing gently but thoroughly. Let stand from 15 minutes to one hour to soften tapioca, mixing several times.
2. Meanwhile, in a food processor or a bowl, whirl or rub together with your fingers the matzo meal, the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, margarine,and nutmeg to create fine crumbs.
3. Squeeze matzo mixture to compact into lumps, then crumble over rhubarb mixture.
4. Baked in a 375°F oven until cobbler is bubbling in center and top is golden brown, about 1 hour. Let cool 15 minutes.
5. Spoon cobbler into bowls and top with sorbet or whipped cream (optional).
