Hamentashen

A blogger friend of mine made these for Purim. He is an inspiration in the kitchen..and uses a toaster oven! I think that is so cool. Check out Mendy's wonderful Greenstein's bakery.

The recipe for these cookies can be found here. The tradition is to use poppy seeds but this version uses chocolate and peanut butter. Yum.

Here we are cutting out the dough and working hard in our kitchen.

We had to keep the babe busy so....wonderful bread anyone? By the way, I didn't let her have the whole thing because it was so good. A gift from the bread master.

Plopping on the filling! My comment here would be to half the filling recipe because it makes enough for an army.
We ate these while watching our favorite Sabbath movie, Esther and the King. What a fun family activity on the Sabbath.
Crunchy and wonderful. Exciting and fun to learn about a new tradition and holiday. I hope it isn't offensive to cook these just for fun!!
