Celebrating Modern Jewish Living Through Food, Tradition, and Family

Apple Crisp – Healthy Option

Apple crisp is fall’s favorite dessert and our lighter version is sweet and crumbly with notes of cinnamon, lemon and vanilla.

The Backstory: Apple Crisp is a traditional fall dessert that’s a perfect chocie for your Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot or Thanksgiving celebration. The dish’s star ingredient–apples–reminds us of the sweetness and promise of the New Year, the bounty of the autumn harvest, and the simple, sweet blessings in our lives. This recipe is also very easy to follow and can be made ahead and reheated just before serving. Best of all–the aroma that will fill your home while the crisp is baking is just incredible. This is (healthy) comfort food at its finest and it’s meant to be shared with loved ones. What could be better than that?
