Purim hasn't even started yet and already there is way too much junk food in this house.
And it's only my fault.
Once I start making triangle shaped food, I can't seem to stop.
I need help.
These were from our second attempt at hamentashen this year. If you've been following along, you'll know that our go-to recipe failed us this year. It must be all this beautiful weather here. (Isn't that what people always say when a recipe goes wrong? Oh, must be the weather.) Anyway, we used my friend Sarah's recipe and yahoo, they're so pretty. Sprinkle hamentashen - a little tip: If you sprinkle the sprinkles onto the dough as your are rolling it out, the rolling pin will push the sprinkles into the dough and it'll be much easier. Just flip the sprinkled dough over before you cut the circles so the sprinkles are on the underside of the dough. That way the sprinkles will be on the outside of the hamentashen as they bake. How many times can you say sprinkles in one sentence? Go ahead, try it.
Five, count 'em, five different kinds of hamentashen. All wrapped up for the teachers that we won't be seeing on Purim. (Okay, I'm lying, it's not really five different kinds. There are only two fillings - chocolate brownies and apricot. We dressed them up in five different ways with sprinkles and some chocolate dipping and things like that. Does that still count as five?)
It's Friday afternoon. I gotta go.
Wishing you a super fun Purim!
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
