So this Purim I decided to forgo the traditional and mix it up a bit. I went with Kitchen Tested's Black and White Cookie Hamantaschen. I embarked on this journey recognizing that I had only made these cookies once before and they were much more traditional (think raspberry filling instead of chocolate). But I have a pregnancy sweet tooth for chocolate as does the little guy (minus the pregnancy of course) so I went with it.
And I am so happy I did.
It was an involved process and since I stopped before making the icing so I could go get delightfully pampered at Serenity Spa, it ended up taking me two days to make them. But once they were done it was so so worth it. Although the husband disagrees as he saw the amount of dishes in the sink and said nothing was worth cleaning that up :)
I couldn't find black and white cookies to use in the cookie butter
so I used some Keebler Simply Made Chocolate Chip Cookies
instead and it was still delightful.
The dough tastes just like black and white cookies and was super simple to make. I did have to add a bit more whipping cream (I used heavy whipping cream since that's what I could find) at the end to make it easier to roll out.
As for the final product...the kid and I loved them. The husband isn't a fan of the dough but then it came out that he might not like black and white cookies very much in general so I think that solves that.
So I have a TON of cookies now...who wants some? :)
