A Joyous Purim

piled up 1

I recently discovered that Bed Bath and Beyond has their very own blog, called Above and Beyond. Who knew? Check out today’s issue to see yours truly featured as their guest blogger and read the full story! I was asked to write a guest post about the Jewish holiday Purim, which begins tomorrow (Saturday February 23) night.

I share with their readers how to make Hamentashen, the traditional triangular shaped cookie, filled with a dried fruit filling. My hamentashen recipe actually comes from my Aunt Carol. She shared their recipe and techniques with me. Her filling uses dried prunes, golden raisins, strawberry jam, lemon juice and almond extract.

If you are looking for something more modern to celebrate the holidays with check out my recipe for Cinnamon Bun Hamentashen from last year.

    The photo of those cinnamon roll hamantashen is what caught my eye originally. Now that I’ve tried them, my mouth waters when I look at it ! Thanks for the fun recipe and happy Purim!

    All that blogging about hamataschens have tempted me to try making them, even though I’m not Jewish…besides I’ve just made a batch of fig jam, so…it was meant to be?
