Shabbat Menu – Deconstructed Apple Pie

Bezalel and Oholiab, the master artisans entrusted with the building of the Mishkan, would take the daily contributions of gold, silver, copper, embroidery and more and use these gifts towards their holy task.  The generosity overwhelmed the artists and Moses told Bnai Yisrael to stop giving.  There was more than enough.  Even for leftovers.  As I imagine how amazing it must have been to witness this outpouring from the people, I also wonder (as I do most every Shabbat) when is enough, enough?  There are days when I prepare a chicken soup, but my oldest child doesn’t like pieces of chicken, my middle child doesn’t like carrots, and my youngest – hold the celery.  Sometimes, you need a notepad to keep track of the requests coming from the kids table. The genius of Jamie’s Deconstructed Apple Pie is it takes a classic American recipe, but dares to be different.  Slightly tart and spicy and 100% delicious.  If you’re tired of asking for new dessert ideas or looking for something quick & kosher that everyone will love, you’ve come to the right place!
