What a coincidence -- I just finished baking a batch of Hamantaschen with DS! I used a recipe from my favorite Jewish cookbook -- Gloria Kaufer Greene's "Jewish Holiday Cooking" -- which is very similar to the "Bubbie Rho" recipe posted here. Yum.
My favorite are prune, and I also always made apricot, using the Solo fillings. I've made them with Nutella in the past, but felt like being a little more traditional this year. I know almost everyone else swears by poppyseed, but I've never quite taken to it.
DS, who is 5, insisted on cutting out the circles and shaping most of the hamantaschen by himself this year -- and he did a pretty good job, I have to say!!
"We reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our founding fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake."
--President Barack Obama, 1/20/09
