Apple of Your Eye

Rosh Hashanah is early this year. It is good timing as I think it gives a nice little break from the sudden craziness of school starting, along with carpools and kids’ activities.

Send guests home with a sweet treat – apple pie in a jar! Delicious in a pie, or just by itself, and the cute jars look fabulous on the table or stacked by the door, tied with pretty ribbon.



L’Shana Tovah!
