Many will tell you that the bread of affliction often includes not only the matzo itself, but also the desserts made with matzo meal and eaten cautiously for the eight, unleavened days of Passover.

It needn't be so. Yes, there are the creamy-chewy macaroons (which we love) and chocolate-covered matzo (which we also love), but there are a lot of Passover-friendly desserts that don't come near the dense-making matzo meal, or use it only sparingly. Here are a few of our favorites—unleavened but hardly afflicted at all:
