Our Best Desserts for a Sweet Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year and like most Jewish holidays, it usually revolves around a big feast and ends with a plethora of desserts to mark the celebration. Most sweet treats will incorporate Rosh Hashanah’s star ingredients: apples and honey. The meal begins by dipping apples in honey to symbolize the start of a sweet new year. This is also the reason apples and honey are heavily featured in most Rosh Hashanah desserts. During this holiday it’s customary to wish someone “Shana Tova U’metuka” or “Have a Sweet and Happy New Year” to ring in a new, sweet start.
