This Sunday or Monday, Jews around the world celebrate the holiday of Purim. The traditional food is a filled, triangle-shaped cookie know n as hamantashen. You can use any cookie dough that is easy to roll and cut.
I’d never made yeast hamantashen before, and I decided to experiment with sourdough. They came out okay, but I prefer a crisp dough that I always make. I’m a traditional kind of girl. . .
The filling pictured is also the traditional poppyseed. The recipe is 3/4 cup of ground poppy seed, juice of half a lemon, an egg yolk, lemon zest, and 1-2 tablespoons honey. You may need a little more egg to get the filling to stick together. You can grind poppy seeds in a coffee grinder.
