Purim How-To Guide
I made some easy Hamantashen cookies with pie crust and milk chocolate chips. Here's how:
I bought some ready made pie crust and rolled it out.
Then using a small mason jar I cut out as many circles as I could. It made about 17 circles per pie crust.
I placed about 9 chocolate chips in the center of each circle.
I outlined each circle with water using my finger. Then I folded up one of the sides.
Then I folded up the other two sides. Make sure that you pinch the corners tightly or it will pull apart when it is baked.
I baked them in a 450 degree oven until brown (about 7 minutes).
They really were yummy and fun to eat!
