  • 4 oz (125g) Fine Matzo Meal

Put all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and rub in the fat until no particle larger than a pea comes to the surface when the bowl is shaken.

Make a well, drop in the egg, then gradually mix in the dry ingredients and knead to form a dough. Chill for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
