It’s official, Purim is less than a week away! Before you know it, everyone will be dressing up and eating tons of hamantaschen. Being the cookie fanatic that I am, I just can’t eat enough hamantaschen. Aren’t they just great? Every year the highlight of Purim, for me, is when my dad makes his amazing hamantaschen. It’s really fun to make them with him in the kitchen. He even makes a surprisingly delicious gluten free hamantaschen for my mom. But, to be honest, I get tired of the typical hamantaschen filled with jelly, poppy seeds, or chocolate.
When Jamie Geller asked me to film a cooking video with her, for Purim, I set out to create a never seen before hamantashen recipe. My idea combined the classic hamantaschen with my all time favorite dessert, churros, to come up with these, off the hook, Churro Hamantashen. They are filled with decadent dulce de leche, that is homemade. It’s a fun twist on the traditional Jewish hamantaschen. It was so fun cooking with Jamie and teaching her how to make this decadent holiday sweet. Shout out to my friend Eitan Dukas and his family for letting us film this video in their beautiful kitchen! Check out the video below:
I hope you guys like the video! These Churros Hamantaschen are really the bomb! You have got to try them! Also, if you make this recipe or any of my others, please post a picture and tag me @ChefEitanBernath. I love seeing how my recipes come out in your kitchens! Enjoy! 🙂
