Yea, I don’t know what happened this year. Normally, this dough gives me minimal frustration, but for some reason, this go-round I got half a batch of nice-looking little guys and half a batch of…well, sexyugly. Tasty, nonetheless — but not the kind of cookie you want to pass out. Especially not when you have a food blog. Ugh.

You know what? I’ll own it. This dough may not produce the prettiest guys in the pack, but they’re damn tasty. The dough is crunchy on the outside, nicely flaky, and flavored with tons of lemon zest. Nothing like those crumbly, nasty things they sell at the bakery. I’m just saying.

Any hamentaschen disaster stories? Share in the comments.

    Paul — good question, and I can’t believe I didn’t say in the post. I made some with strawberry, some with raspberry, some of each of those flavors with a bit of tempered chocolate added, some plain chocolate, and some of each of the three flavors with a bit of candied ginger thrown in, which I really liked.

    I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who failed. Like I emailed you, mine kept on breaking while rolling the dough. I managed to make 4!!! That’s all. Used the rest to make a grape pie. I’ll try to post it on my site by the end of this week.
