On Rosh Hashanah, it's tradition to dip apples in honey to symbolize a sweet new year. From fluffy apple cake to frozen-yogurt sundaes, here are nine fantastic apple desserts to make for the Jewish holiday.

1. Apple Blintz Hand Pies
Tart and sweet apples are combined with farmer cheese and cinnamon for these miniature pies.

2. Apple Dumplings
Frozen puff-pastry sheets make quick work of these sweet, flaky desserts.

We like pretty much any kind of dumpling and that definitely includes these apple dumplings. In this dish, apples baked in flaky pastry with cinnamon sugar are irresistible. They're even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. And to save preparation time, we use frozen puff-pastry sheets.
