Here’s an oldie but goodie from the Green Earth Girl archives… I’m willing to bet that the title of this blog looks like gibberish to about half of the people reading. That’s okay, because you’re about to learn something new and delicious. Hamantaschen are traditional Jewish cookies made to celebrate Purim (which is a lengthy holiday that I will let you google if you’re interested in it). They’re basically sugar cookies with filling, but in actuality they’re so much more than that. No worries for those who are nervous, this was my first time making them too!
…is hard. Really, really hard. And expensive. And difficult, although I suppose that’s redundant.
I set out a few days back to convert an old family recipe to all organic ingredients. I figured it would be easy – just buy the organic version of each ingredient and — voila! — beautiful brownies. Well, they were beautiful, and delicious, but it wasn’t so simple.
