However you spell it, however you say it, it's all the same yummy goodness! I'm representing the Jewish Princess inside me!
I went to the farmer's market today and found some Italian Prunes and had to have them. In an instant I knew what I wanted to make...Humentashen!
This is the recipe I used for the filing.
Here is the recipe I used for the cookie.
I tweaked them a little. For the filing I added some blueberries (just because I picked them up today as well), and added corn starch to make it really thick. Then for the cookie dough I used half Crisco and half bacon grease! lol I guess they're not Kosher!
They're delishious and I totally had a nice flashback to my childhood...Lower East Side Manhattan with my mother and grandmother enjoying amazing Jewish snacks! YUMMY!
