Desserts and Sweets: Hamentaschen

By Freya (Blitstein) Maslov

Related to: Polonnoye (Town)Recipes


Grandma Sarah was a great cook, and made some of Grandma Rose’s hardest recipes with ease. The “handful” measure, I actually measured while watching them both make some of their recipes. The “handful” had to make a detour into a measuring spoon or cup before it was added to the recipe, because each one’s hand was a different size. As for baking – she couldn’t bake a frozen pie! That became “my” job. - - Freya Blitstein Maslov

4 eggs
½ tsp. salt
½ cup shortening (Crisco)
1 tsp. baking powder
