This year Purim came early, so I waas bit unprepared, baking Hamentaschen (the traditional 3 cornered cookie) on the morning of the holiday.
This is a wild and crazy holiday, where everyone dresses in costume, so I went as my baby:)
See how we matched?
The bigger kids went as "a baby-princess-pajama-formerly-Angelina-Ballerina" and a fireman.
Sometimes the simplicity of a 3 year old boy is so refreshing when compared to the complexity of a 5 year old girl, you know?
For the cookies I used a new sugar cookie dough recipe that I don't recommend, but pretty much, the process is as follows:
Assemble dough, flour for rolling, fillings (jams, jellies, chocolates, the traditional poppyseed was nixed at my house).
Cut out circles of your dough.
Place filling inside.
Fold up 3 sides and pinch corners to create the triangle shape.
In my case, they fell apart, but still tasted pretty delicious:)
We took these pics after sampling the cookies, so baby-love is a happy-bappy:)
