Hamantashen

Recipe by dojemi

Traditional triangular cakes eaten on Purim to symbolize Haman's hat. Servings are difficult to estimate. I have indicated 24, but it could be more or less. I don't always get the same amount.

Seems so simple. Will try it tomorrow with a friend. I add chocolate (cocoa, sugar and a drop of water) as a filling-evryone loves it.
