Passover Fruit Crisp (Pareve)

Passover Fruit Crisp

This will be the perfect ending to your wonderful Seder, so delicious, lightly sweet, and a breeze to prepare. I took a shortcut and used frozen fruit. This dish is pareve, and can be lightly reheated if you have any leftovers (not likely!). Everyone will want this recipe, you might be starting a new tradition! Wishing everyone a Happy Passover, Chag Sameach!



1 ½  cups matzah farfel

½ cup Passover cake meal

½ tsp. cinnamon (optional)

1/3 cup + 2 Tbls. pareve margarine

½ cup + 2 Tbls. brown sugar

(Fruit Filling):

1   bag (16 oz.) frozen unsweetened peaches (partially defrosted)

½ bag (16 oz.) frozen unsweetened dark cherries (partially defrosted)

2 ½ Tbls. lemon juice

1 Tbls. potato starch

1 Tbls. brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F; place topping ingredients except farfel in food processor and pulses a few times; then add farfel and pulse one or two pulses ( don’t over process, you should still see pieces of the farfel.) Set aside in small bowl.
  2. In large mixing bowl, mix fruit with lemon juice; combine potato starch and brown sugar in small bowl, stirring well. Add to fruit and mix well. Pour into deep 9” baking dish or similar type dish, sprinkle topping over fruit. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour, until golden brown and bubbly. Serve warm or cool slightly.

Tip: If you don’t have a food processor, you can make the topping buy placing the farfel in a zipper plastic bag, and lightly crush into smaller pieces with a rolling pin or solid object; combine the other ingredients with a fork, or knead them together with your hands.
