Great-Grandmother Bubbie's Hamantaschen

Rating: 4.5 stars 27
Brought over from Poland by my great-grandmother, these little fruit-filled cookies are traditional for the Jewish holiday Purim where they are put in gift baskets and given to all one's friends. We always make extra so there are some left over for us, they are the best! (The filling can be anything, for a shortcut, you can substitute any flavor of jam, but this is the original filling.)

These cookies have a great tart and sweet taste. These are not just a Christmas cookie, but they get asked for every year! You can substitute cranberry sauce for apricot preserve, or try doing half apricot and half cranberry, yum!

I was searching to make the perfect citrus-y cranberry shortbread cookie, but it always felt like something was missing. So on a final attempt, when I didn't have enough dried cranberries to make a full recipe, I threw in some dried apricots and bam! That was it! They add the perfect backdrop flavor to these shortbread cookies!

Apricot Ginger Crumble Oat Bars (Gluten Free)
Rating: 4.5 stars 4

Slightly buttery and crunchy with great oat flavor. Apricots and the slightly citrusy and peppery ginger are meant to be together! These bars are a great way to transform fruits and oats into something every kid, big and small, will devour!
