Sweet Desserts

Graham Cracker Sukkah: While not a traditional holiday practice, a family friendly activity to celebrate the holiday is by making graham cracker sukkahs. Modeled after gingerbread houses, they use graham crackers, royal icing, pretzels, nuts, cinnamon sticks, and other edible decorations to craft miniature replicas of the real thing. Kids will have fun enjoying (or eating!) their creation.

Apple and Pear Strudel: This incredibly easy strudel yields a large amount that will be sure to fill up the whole family. Apples and pears are perfect for Sukkot and are a sweet end to a delicious and hearty main dish.

There are many recipes that you can use for Sukkot, and they don’t have to be difficult. If you are looking for more ways to change up your recipes, consider incorporating the seven species of the Hebrew Bible – wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives or dates – to give your food a special taste. Be adventurous and enjoy the festival of abundance!
