Apple Crumble Square Recipe Rosh Hashana Sweet Dessert

Apple Crumble Squares Rosh Hashana Sweet Dessert Idea

A few days ago while I was on my Instagram my eye caught a photo of an apple crumble square recipe on my Instagram feed.

To my delight, the apple square recipe was posted below the photo. Being that I enjoy baking and trying out new recipes, I went ahead and took a screen shot, and got to baking this new-found, perfect-for-rosh-hashana dessert recipe.

I made a few changes which I thought would bring it to higher level of yumminess.

And yummy it is!

I like myself a good cup of coffee. I don’t get out much, since I’m crazy busy with work. However, we I DO get out, my favorite go to coffee chill spot is Hillel cafe.

I take my children out on breakfast/ lunch/ dinner dates from time to time, and two out of three of my children always order the breakfast. My third orders her favorite pasta.

Included in the Hillel cafe breakfast menu is fresh squeezed juice. When my eye spotted the FRESH apple juice, I had to give it a try. Oh me, oh my. That was the best apple juice I have ever tasted.

Now back to my apple crumble square recipe:

When grating the apples for the recipe filling, there was a lot of juice in the bowl. I didn’t want the filling to be all liquid-y, so I squeezed the juice out… When the realization hit me, THE APPLE LIQUID WOULD MAKE DELICIOUS APPLE JUICE!

And so, I poured the juice into a cup… and it was even better than cafe Hillel’s fresh apple juice!
