Baking: Hamantaschen


I adore Smitten Kitchen! The food. The photos. All of it is delish! I saw these a few days ago and knew I needed to have them in my life.

So, I broke out the KitchenAid and went to town. I love this mixer so much... definitely my most favorite wedding present.


I was surprised at how simple the mixing and the rolling and the cutting was. I didn't have a circular cookie cutter, so I used a wine glass!

Note: do not use this much jelly. It's too much jelly.

I used Fresh Cherry Jelly from TJ's. The cherries are so big and yummy! Makes excellent PB&J.

Pinch and turn the corners. They look really adorable before baking.

Then you bake them and they look like poo.


But they are pretty damn tasty. I am definitely going to attempt this one again. I think a thicker dough, less jelly, harder pinching. Should do the trick!

The tastiest treats often look like crap. Please save one for me and bring it to our next TKB class. God knows after TKB I could probably eat 100 of these and still be at even.

They do look like poo.... but I still want to try one!

That is so hilarious I busted out laughing.

I can't wait to get a mixer in the mail....when I actually register for one...and someone actually buys it for me.

Hell, they may look like poo, but I'd still chow down on em!
