Today is the Jewish holiday of Purim so I baked hamentashen using a basic sugar cookie recipe (like this one) plus whatever jam I happened to have in the refrigerator (this week, Four Fruits Preserves from Bonne Maman).  However, Deb Perelman of the blog Smitten Kitchen posted this amazing recipe for apricot hazelnut brown butter hamentaschen, and next year I might have to try it.

Happy Purim!


  1. Hello,
    I wish you and your family a nice Purim. I'm catholic and I didn't know what it meant but with wikipedia, now I understand. It's a beautiful party.
    Have a very very good day with all you love.

  2. Looks great! Have to admit that while I usually lament about not baking hamentaschen with my kids, this year I was so busy I forgot to lament! In any case my kids are so pre-occupied in trading gifts of junk food (that I never buy, except once a year for them to give out) that they certainly didn't miss anything! Thanks for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!

  3. Hello Familie Bloom
    Happy Purim - enjoy the party. Love Parkes Familie xxxx
