So I’m thinking… why not combine them with my own experiment from last year (a couple of pics here): pumpkin-pie hamentashen??? Would that not be just about the perfect winter motif? What’s more American at this time of year than pumpkin pie and gingerbread???
(Note to American readers: I only ONLY ever use the word “America” when referring to the continent of North America. It’s this thing I have. The country most people refer to as America is the United States of America, or US, for short. America is where I live, too.)
It wasn’t really pumpkin-pie filling; just tinned pumpkin seasoned and thickened with… hmm… you’d think I could remember. I think I just tossed in some egg to hold it together, maybe some flour.
I actually still happen to have some gingerbread dough still in the fridge (Don’t I sound unbearably domestic when I say that? But really I just made WAY too much!). And I promised Naomi we’d make gingerbread men today.
Maybe I’ll stamp out some circles and make some experimental hamentashen while we’re at it!
Postscript: experiment #1 in gingerbread hamentashen was… a mixed success.
