ice cream

Yummy Jewish baked goodies!

So this morning after I got back from my weekly shot, I said, "I don't wanna work, I wanna bake!"

And so I did.

I am astounded how well things have turned out, especially how much I've made. I have to say, these Jewish baking recipes are really high yield. Normally when a recipe says "makes four dozen cookies," it actually makes barely two dozen. Now with these recipes, it said 4-5 dozen but actually makes way MORE than that! I have around 50 prune-raisin-walnut hamentaschen and 130 (!) poppyseed cookies. After I go out to get vegies for the pigs, I plan on doing another kind of poppyseed cookie, which will added up to another 10 dozen cookies. Also, I only used up about 1/3 of the prune filling so I can make two more batches of that later, either tomorrow (supposing they all get eaten) or later next week.

Pictures will be posted later.

I am one happy baker and the people who come through on the tour this weekend and going to be like "OMG! Food! Cookies! Free!"

Sometimes the LJ Random Text Generator is a beautiful thing, like when it muddles my entries and makes me sound like I'm really high...

Well, I managed to pull myself together and despite problems focusing, finished a new web site that offends me, which is to say it TASTES divine! The filling is made up of prunes, raisins, orange juice, lemon juice, walnuts, and cinnamon. I could easily eat it for 50 minutes.
