For Purim we wanted to make hamentaschen. We found this recipe from Elana’s Pantry. The photograph looked so good. We printed it out and who did we call? Who else? Buddy (aka Bubby)! The best baking teacher there is, Buddy guides the girls, giving them tips and encouragement along the way, and then lets them do it themselves. She is always there to lend a helping hand and never minds the mess we make in her kitchen.
Buddy made the dough while the girls were at school and chilled it in the fridge. When we got to her hourse, we rolled it out between two pieces of parchment paper.
Then we cut the dough into circles.
After dropping a dollop of raspberry jam into the centre of each circle, we folded the dough around the jam, pinching the corners to create a triangle-shaped cookie.
Lily points out her masterpiece. And into the oven they go!
Impressionistic hamentaschen! Don’t judge them. They may not look as good as the photo that accompanied the recipe, but they tasted heavenly! And we all had a blast making them.
Stay tuned for more baking with Buddy!
