How to Make Kosher Homemade Hamantaschen for Purim

This simple how-to video will show you how to make and bake your very own homemade kosher “hamantaschen” cookies for purim. All you need is some sugar cookie dough, a rolling pin, baking paper, assorted preserves (not jelly) or other filling of your choice, some flour, and an oven. Roll out the dough into thick patties, use a glass to cut out circles, then place the filling in the middle, after which you can space them out on a cookie sheet and bake them until they are light brown. Enjoy and don’t forget to let them cool down before storing or eating them!

The recipe used was from Sharon’s Sweets.

How Kosher Soft Pretzels Are Made

We all love those frozen pretzels that you throw in microwave then eat with a healthy dose of mustard – but what about real soft pretzels made fresh? It turns out that they can easily be made with pizza dough. The trick in this case is making the pretzel part fast – sort of like the way that those people fold t-shirts in two seconds flat. So of course we filmed it with a high-frame-rate camera so that we could slow it down and share with you all how it is done! Enjoy!
