Holiday Baking

I just went and looked up the post I wrote two years ago about making hamantashen for Purim and--horrors!--the dough recipe had disappeared! This is the best hamantashen dough ever as far as I'm concerned: moist, easy to work, and full of orange which enhances every filling I've ever used from classsics like poppyseed and apricot to the more modern chocolate and hazelnut. Most hamantashen dough is dry and crumbly and, in my opinion, just not all that appetizing.

I hunted around for a while and found the recipe living elsewhere and have updated the link so go get started with your baking. Even if you aren't Jewish, it's hard to beat the taste of a lovely, homemade hamantashen.

Glad you posted this. We're going to a potluck next weekend and I was planning to do some research to figure out what to bring, I know next to nothing about this particular holiday (I'm assuming we'll learn more about it at the potluck). I'll take any other suggestions you have, too.

Yay, I can't wait to make these--they are right down our alley.
