Savory Hamantaschen

March 12, 2020

I really looked forward to the Jewish Holiday Purim this year just so I could try my hand at baking another Hamantaschen recipe. Supposedly these triangle-shaped, pouch-like pastries resemble the three-cornered hat worn by the villain Haman, who was defeated, thus saving the lives of the Jewish people. Anyway, whatever the reason, I'm happy that these adorable pastries exist.
Last year I made my first hamantaschen, which were deliciously filled with pastry cream and chocolate chips. Since I'm more of a savory person, I thought I'd try my hand at a non-sweet version. I was thrilled to find this Caramelized Onion and Poppy Seed recipe from NY Times Cooking.

The Recipe: Caramelized Onion and Poppy Seed Hamantaschen from the NY Times Cooking (but googling found this link so you can access it without a subscription). They're like little savory pies, deliciously flavored with caramelized onions, herbs and feta cheese.
