Recipes for Shavuot

It is customary to eat dairy food on Shavuot for a number of reasons. One reason is that Shavuot is linked to the Exodus from Egypt into the Promised Land. We read in Exodus 3:8: "So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey." Traditional Shavuot menus will include cheesecake, blintzes, and other recipes featuring dairy products.
