Hello! My friend recently gave me this cookie recipe that is traditionally made for the Jewish celebration of Purim. Granted, Purim is about a month away (I believe it falls on March 24 this year), but this recipe is too good not to share:

Hamentaschen cookies:
2/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup orange juice WITHOUT pulp
1 cup white flour
1 cup wheat flour (DO NOT subsitute with white flour)
Fruit preserves, fruit butters and/or pie fillings of your choice

Blend butter and sugar thoroughly. Add the egg and blend. Add OJ. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, alternating white and wheat, blending thoroughly between each. Refrigerate batter overnight. When ready to bake, roll as thin as you ca without getting holes in the batter. Cut out 3 or 4 inch circles. Put a tablespoon of filling in the middle of each circle. Fold up sides to make a triangle. Squeeze the corners firmly. Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, until golden brown but before filling boils over.

Suggested fillings: poppy seed, prune, apricot, apple, pineapple, cherry, etc.

I Looove poppyseed filled Hamentaschen.  And purim is right around the corner too (when you are suppose to eat Hamen's hat).

Having never had a Jewish gradmother from whom to inherit this recipe, I much appreciate it!

Oh, I REALLY appreciate this!!  I used to get hamentaschen from a Jewish deli when I was in college, and they are one of my favorite things.  Now that I don't live in a big city, I don't really have access to any kind of "Jewish deli".  I'm definitely going to try it -- thanks!

In the baking aisle at the grocery store, there's a section with all the pie filling fruits, and usually you can find almond filling, poppy seed filling, etc. alongside the apple, cherry and other stuff.

Now I want these.. haven't had them for years!

This is what I do at work when there's nothing on my desk.  Or sometimes when there IS something on my desk... Wink
