bikingandbaking: close-up of strawberries and rhubarb in sugar syrup (strawberry-rhubarb)
This was achieved by taking a few non-Passover crisp recipes and improvising; all of the Passover recipes were going for more cobbler-y ideas with just matzoh meal, rather than having chunks to stand in for oatmeal. Also, many had nuts, which sounds like a great idea, but I wasn't sure what the allergy situation was with the attendees.

1 bag cranberries (IIRC 12 oz)
5 granny smith apples (use at least 2 more next time), peeled and sliced
scant 1/2 cup sugar (use 1/3 cup next time)
4 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom

3 matzoh, crumbled
1/2 cup matzoh meal
1 cup brown sugar or sucanat
pinch salt
2/3 cup salted butter, melted.

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 9x13 pan. Mix all filling ingredients and lay out in pan (basically make sure there isn't an apple corner and a cranberry corner).

Mix topping ingredients except butter, then pour butter over and mix. Sprinkle on filling.

Bake at 375 for at least 30 minutes or until topping has browned a bit.

Much, much better served ASAP as the topping gets soggy because matzoh has amazing hydroscopic powers. (I tasted a little bit of the topping when it came out of the oven.) It was still good the next day at Seder, though.

Chestnut-Mushroom Stuffing )
The next can be made with an almond crust for Passover as well. Use potato starch in place of the flour. Goat Cheese Cheesecake )
Cranberry sauce Cranberry sauce was simple and an amalgam of recipes: the only note is that 2 12oz bags of cranberries took way longer to deal with 2 cups of liquid than the recipes state; use less or cook longer. Spicing was about right -- 10 cardamom pods, 20 cloves, 1 long cinnamon stick, 20 peppercorns, 5 allspice berries or so, in a tea bell.
