Hammantaschen (Ozne Hamman)
After a few weeks of self pitty and longing for my friends and family in Israel, I figured this would be a good way of feeling closer to home.
It took two times to get them right (they were good the first time, but terribly ugly), and after I did, I discovered that they're one of the best things to make; Super quick, and super tasty (I would also mention they stay good for a while, but they were always eaten before I had the chance to check).
So here it goes:
3 cups white flour.
1/2 a cup sugar.
200g melted butter.
1/2 tbs baking powder.
2 tbs lemon juice.
2 tbs sour cream.
50g Bitter-sweet chocolate.
3 tbs Nutella (not necessary).
2 tbs cream.
1 tbs sugar (if you don't add nuttela you may want to add more).
1 tbs instant coffee.
1 tsp vanilla extract.
Powdered sugar (not necessary)
- Preheat oven to 180c.
- Melt the chocolate, add in all the other ingredients for the filling, and let cool for a bit (while you make the dough)
- Divide the dough into three. Take one ball, flatten it (Should be about 1cm thick) and make
Put about 1tsp of filling in the center of each circle, close tightly, forming a triangle. (if you don't seal it well it'll get flat when heated).
- Cool on a rack, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
This post is dedicated to my roommates, I had a great time living with you, I'm sure we'll meet again, and I hope this recipe will serve you well (and remind you of me).
