Apple, Rhubarb, and Sour Cherry Passover Cobbler

Potato starch is sometimes called potato flour. This sweet-tart cobbler is a refreshing change from traditional Passover desserts of chocolate, nuts, and sponge cakes.

Cooking Light APRIL 2004

  • Yield: 10 servings


  • Topping:
  • 1 cup unsalted matzo meal
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • Filling:
  • 5 cups sliced peeled McIntosh apples (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 1 cup chopped frozen rhubarb, thawed
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup canned pitted sour cherries, drained
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons potato starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare topping, spoon the matzo meal into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine matzo meal and next 4 ingredients (matzo meal through dash of cinnamon), stirring with a whisk. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 2 tablespoons orange juice; stir just until moist.

To prepare filling, combine apples and next 6 ingredients (apples through 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon); toss gently.

Press 1 1/2 cups matzo mixture in the bottom of an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon filling over crust; top evenly with remaining matzo mixture. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until filling is bubbly and crust is lightly browned. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
