Hamantaschen
This easy hamantaschen recipe has been passed down in my family for generations and traces back to Germany. These festive triangle-shaped cookies offer the perfect sweet bite for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner. They are traditionally filled with lakbar, a thick tangy prune spread (think apple butter but with prunes). Have fun folding and filling these cookies with your favorite jams and jellies — or for an extra treat, try adding a few chocolate chips in the center for a warm gooey filling.

These tarts take a while to make, but they are worth every minute. The pastries look like one could easily overindulge, but each small shortbread cookie is a commitment. The fruit syrup is heavy and chewy; our British readers may recognize this dessert as the medieval ancestor of the Jammie Dodger.

"We followed the recipe from A Propre New Booke of Cokery, simply swapping some thick- cut bacon in for the original marrow and letting the rest of the recipe be. The sweetness of the pie comes from the fruit, which dissolves as it cooks, providing a satisfying counterpoint to the tart vinegar and salty bacon. Then the fruit fl avor fades into the background, and what remains is a sweet, rich meat pie with an easy medley of flavors." -From a Feast of Ice and Fire
