marvelous mandelbread

Long before everybody in America was selling biscotti out of big glass jars, Jewish bakeries were selling Mandelbread (or as they say, in Yiddish, "Mandelbrot"), biscotti's Eastern European cousin. "Mandel" means almonds in Yiddish, and these are loaded,not laced, but literally loaded with toasted almonds. Made with sweet butter, fresh eggs, lots of fresh orange and lemon zest, and scented with real vanilla. Just the aroma alone is enough to get us excited about the arrival of these traditional Jewish biscuits from the Bakehouse. You can smell the citrus as soon as you break one open. No short cuts taken here. These are mandelbread made the old fashioned way: long loaves are baked once, then sliced and re-baked cut side down, then flipped over and re-baked again. This thrice-baked technique combined with the great ingredients leaves them literally at least three times as flavorful as any mandelbread we've ever had. They're marvelous.

hamentaschen

A bright spot in the middle of winter is Purim, the Jewish holiday which celebrates the triumph of Persian Jews over the wicked minister Haman. Purim brings hamentaschen, the traditional, three-cornered pastry pockets, stuffed with sweet filling. One of the best of Jewish sweets. These beautiful little triangularly shaped cookie pockets are stuffed with an array of our favorite fillings. With that all butter cookie crust and exceptional array of fillings, it's hard to go wrong with a hamentaschen at any time of the day.

This month enjoy apricot preserve or vanilla bean cream cheese filled.
