Eating and drinking is an integral part of the Purim holiday. Here are ideas for doing it right.

HAMANTASHEN

Dough:

  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Flour - 3-4 cups
  • Baking powder - 1 ½ tsp.
  • Salt - ½ tsp.
  • Butter or margarine - 8 oz.
  • Eggs – 2, beaten
  • Orange juice - ½ cup

 

  1. Mix dry ingredients together and cut in shortening until it is in small pieces.
  2. Add eggs and orange juice.
  3. Mix together into a small ball.
  4. Roll out on a floured surface.
  5. Cut out rounds with a glass.

 

Filling: Jam - 16 oz., prune or your favorite flavor jam (Substitutes: poppy seeds or chocolate chips)

Put one teaspoon filling in center of each round. Pick up edges in center to form a triangle and pinch dough together with floured fingers. Baste top with egg yolk diluted with a bit of water. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Chill ingredients first, then add wine just before serving. Serves 20.

    Hint: Freeze some wine in ice cube trays, and use this instead of ice cubes to avoid diluting your punch.
