So Pesach is coming and I’m calm, I really am. I mean, this is not my first rodeo, and besides, I have an entire folder full of Pesach shopping lists, menus and recipes from previous years. Lists are good, right? I feel completely in control of my Pesach planning, so I can now focus my attention on repairing the...

Not My Grandmother’s Hamantashen

E-mail Print PDF
Do you have a favorite hamantashen recipe? I know I do. (And it’s not my grandmother’s, although I do love that one too.) This one is a simple cookie dough recipe that is easy to make, has no margarine, needs no refrigeration prior to rolling out, is very easy to handle and tastes delicious. Do you have one like that? I bet you do, too! So, I’m not going to give you this recipe because you probably think yours is better anyway. (But, please, send me yours!)

Purim after Purim I experiment with different hamantashen doughs, trying to find a better recipe. Why? I don’t know. I feel like there must be an improved one out there. (Is yours?) But no matter how many I’ve tried, I...

You Say Flodni, I Say Fluden

You say flodni, I say fluden.

So what the heck is fluden anyway? Growing up, my grandmother made it for Purim. To me, it was something she put together after she got tired of making hamentashen. You know, there was too much dough left, and she was not rolling, cutting, filling and pinching anymore. So she just layered the dough she had left, with the prune jelly and poppy seed filling she had left, and voila, it’s fluden. Okay, so I wasn’t any more likely to eat the fluden than I was going to eat the hamentashen with the poppy seeds anyway. But, regardless, it was pretty to look at.

This past December I learned that fluden is actually a real thing! In fact, it’s a...
