Happy New Year to everyone who celebrates Rosh Hashana! To help your year start off on a sweet note, here is a recipe for my favorite holiday dessert: Apple Plum Crisp. (Well, favorite along with my mother’s honey cake, of course. Hi, Mom!)
The Apple Plum Crisp is very simple to make, can be prepared ahead of time and may be served warm (with ice cream melting over the top) or at room temperature. The autumn Italian plums add some depth to the flavor of the apples, but mostly they are there for the gorgeous color they impart.
I’m using the honey crisp and golden delicious apples I picked this weekend, which makes me feel very farm-to-table hip.
Post script: You are allowed to make this recipe even if it isn’t your new year, and even if you don’t pick your own apples.
