Purim 2020 is going to be tasty with Jack’s Gourmet and Kosher in the Kitch! I teamed up with Jack’s Gourmet to create these sweet and savory hamantaschen stuffed with fig jam and topped with candied beef facon and silan syrup!
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- Fig jam
- Silan date syrup
- Jack’s Gourmet Facon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- Prepare candied beef facon by rubbing brown sugar over kosher beef facon strips then placing on a parchment lined baking sheet and baking on 350′ for about 10 minutes or until edges are crispy. Once cooked, allow to cool off before cutting into small pieces.
- While the facon cooks, prepare the hamantaschen dough by creaming together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Slowly add flour and baking powder. Mix together.
- Roll dough out on floured surface and cut out circles using a large circle cookie cutter or the rim of a large glass cup or mason jar. Fill center of circle with 1 teaspoon of fig jam then fold dough into triangles.
- Bake on 350′ for 12 to 15 minutes. Allow hamantaschen to cool off then top with chopped up candied beef facon and drizzle silan date syrup on top.
