Hamantaschen Roundup for Purim (Tonight!)
Jeez, Purim completely snuck up on me. Usually I try and find time to make my own hamantaschen but this year, no time and no warning prevented me from doing so. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other drool-worthy photos of hamantaschen circulating the Internet. Let’s all take a look at some of the best looking renditions of the most delicious part of Purim: the hamantaschen.
When I first saw these marbled hamantaschen from The Jew and The Carrot, all I could think was Wow! Chocolate hamantaschen dough? Two different flavors of dough in one cookie? This is a Hamantaschen revolution!
I fell in love with these perfect-looking hamantaschen last year on Smitten Kitchen (Let’s be honest – I fall in love with just about everything on that site.) Her corner-pinching job trumps any hamantaschen I’ve ever made!
These next cookies were my attempt at hamantaschen last year. I made a batch with apricot and raspberry jelly and made another with homemade lemon curd (from my leftover meyer lemons). Truth be told, when I finally realized this year that purim was around the corner, I tried making my lemon curd again but it was far too liquidy and unusable.
Last (but not least!), let’s talk about these super delicious-looking hamantaschen I featured at the beginning of this post. This variety of fruit and even chocolate peanut butter hamantaschen comes from my friend Melissa. Her 3 year old pitched in and called them “triangle cookies with fruit”. She posted them in a Facebook photo album and I just couldn’t resist the variety of flavors. She really needs to start her own food blog!
That’s all for the hamantaschen roundup but feel free to post your own recipes and links in the comments below! Happy Purim!
