Fruit pies are a good choice for the harvest holiday of Succot because
they showcase the flavors of the season. For Simhat Torah, we like to
accent our pies with fruits and nuts that were available in the Land of
Israel in biblical times, such as grapes or raisins, dates, figs,
almonds, pistachios and walnuts.A popular way to enhance fruit
pies is to bake them with a crumbly streusel. Ofer Gal, author of Les
Gateaux de La Boutique Central (in Hebrew), which features recipes from
the Tel Aviv patisserie, uses streusel on several of his pies.
