My newest column at Cooking for US is live. It's a piece about how I'm starting to explore older recipes from Mom's and Dave's cookbooks. The recipe I featured is Hamantaschen, a triangular cookie with a fruit filling in an open center. The cookie historically represents an evil-doer's hat, and is typically baked during the Jewish holiday of Purim. I don't usually stand on ceremony, especially when it comes to cookies, so I tried the recipe recently before the heatwave started.
Here's the link to the story.
