A Rosh Hashana Apple Crisp!

On Rosh Hashana, apples are traditionally served dipped in honey to celebrate a sweet new year. If you're like me, you always tend to err on the side of overbuying the apples...this should put them to good use!

Apple Crisp


  • 1 ½ cups dark brown sugar

  • 1 cup flour

  • 12 tablespoons nom-dairy margarine

  • 8-10 tart apples

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

  • ½ cup sugar

  • 1 large lemon


1. Crumbs: Insert steel knife into bowl of processor. Combine brown sugar and flour in bowl and pulse for one minute. Cut margarine into tablespoons and add to processor. Pulse on and off for a few minutes until mixture starts to form soft lumps. Set aside.

2. Preheat oven to: 375 F.

3. Quarter, core and peel apples. Place them in a large mixing bowl. Grate lemon directly over apples. Squeeze lemon juice over apples and toss lightly. Add white sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and toss again.

4. Pour apple mixture into baking dish and cover with soft crumbs. Place in oven and bake 45 minutes or until you see the apple juices bubbling at the top of the crumbs. Remove from oven and cool on rack. Serve warm or at room temperature (even cold is good).
