No Dough'p

Last night, despite ridiculous levels of exhaustion, I tried a hamantaschen recipe from Amy Meltzer of Homeshuling and they came out a little tough, even though I handled them minimally and rolled them fairly thin. They may be better after sitting for a day or two, though; the toddler had one this morning and was in heaven.

Yeah, you heard me, I gave a 3-year-old a cookie for breakfast. (Part of the wonder of Purim)

The orange/chocolate hamantaschen from Jewish Holiday Style didn’t freeze well – they were AWESOME when fresh (yes, 2 sticks of butter will do that) but defrosted a bit pie-doughy. Very short.

Clearly, more baking is in order. To the kitchen, hamantaschen makers!

I have never considered them tough, but they are of a very different consistency than cakey or yeasted hamentashen. Sorry you didn't love them!

Not much different from toast with butter and marmalade - my breakfast of choice while growing up (when I actually ate breakfast, usually it would just be strong coffee with milk and sugar).
And I turned out fine.

BoTH - that conclusion is debatable. ;)

So happy to see that I'm not the only mama who celebrates Adar with hamantaschen for breakfast :)
