Every year since I was about 11 years old, I have baked Hamantashen on the Jewish holiday of Purim. I've never been very religious, and its quite a minor holiday as well. For me its just a good excuse to make the cookies. I received this recipe from a woman that worked with my father ages ago. I've never really eaten another Hamantashen as this one is so good, it uses almond extract in the dough.
This year, my youngest daughter announced that she wants to be a Chef when she grows up. Go her! We baked these together, prune and apricot.
Strangely, Lola doesn't look very interested
Thank you to Ruby Bernstein if you happen to read this, your recipe lives on!
