Looks are not everything, you know...

Today is Purim and last night I decided to make hamentaschen (the spelling differs quite a bit)for the first time in my life. I found a recipe on Washington Post for cream cheese dough, went to the store, borrowed a rolling pin and a cutter from Sur La Table and set out to bake 32 cookies before going dancing.

The outcome was rather mixed: the cookies spread out and did not hold together, the baking time was at least 5-7 minutes longer than in the recipe, my kitchen is a gignormous mess. However, to concentrate on the positive, I tried something new, and the hamentaschen tasted absolutely great! Perhaps I'll try them again next year with a new recipe.
