Recipes for Hamentashen

Well, its almost Purim & there are just so many recipes for Hamentashen ….I will post some links to a few here! In case you don’t know what Hamentashen are, they are a triangle shaped cookie that have different types of fillings… fruit, poppyseed, chocolate, cherry… anything really!( The picture is of my grandkids making chocolate chip hamantaschen!)

These cookies are eaten for the Jewish holiday of Purim… the story is interesting so if you want to know about the story of Purim, there are many resources on the internet!

I made my hamentashen with a recipe of my grandmothers that my mom made…. the dough is soft & not cookie like really. I get together with friends & we make lots of cookies! This year we made 265 which is less then usual! Then my great nieces & nephews came over with some of their friends & we baked Sprinkle Hamentashen! & I made some with my grandchildren… chocolate chip cookie ones! & then some yeast poppyseed ones! All are delish!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
