PRUNE AND CHOCOLATE HAMANTASHEN
Makes approximately 40
FOR THE FILLING
200g dark chocolate
140g soft dried prunes
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon brandy
FOR THE PASTRY
250g softened unsalted butter
80g light brown sugar
2 large egg yolks
400g plain sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons (smooth no pulp) orange juice
PRE HEAT THE OVEN TO 180°C/350°F/GAS MARK 4
Make the filling first. Break the chocolate into squares and place them in a double-saucepan (bain-marie) or in a small, heatproof bowl over a pan of hot water to melt.
Once melted remove the chocolate from the heat and add the rest of the filling ingredients. Blend until smooth.
To make the pastry, beat the butter and sugar together until pale.
While still beating slowly add the egg yolks to the mixture one at a time.
Still beating, add spoonfuls of the dry ingredients until all used up.
Continue to beat until this is all incorporated then slowly add the orange juice.
On a very well-floured board pat out the pastry with your hands to approximately 5mm in thickness.
With a 7cm cookie cutter, cut the pastry into circles and place them on baking tray lined
with baking parchment.
Moisten the edges of each circle (do one at a time) with water, then place a teaspoon of the chocolate mixture in the centre of each. Fold in the edges to form a triangle shape.
Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is a pale golden brown.
Leave to cool on the baking tray before serving.
This year Purim starts when Shabbat ends on the 11th March. Why not bake some of these delicious Hamantashen and give them as “Mishloach Manot” (food gifts) to your friends and family.

Grease the tins and line the bottom with baking paper (heart shaped if you have).
Divide the mixture into the two tins.
Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 30-40 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
Turn the cakes out onto a wire rack.
Remove the paper from the bottom of the cakes. (don’t worry if the meringue is a little cracked, it adds to the charm of this delicious desert).
A couple of hours before you want to serve the Meringue Cake,
whisk the cream and fold in half of the raspberries.
Sandwich the two cake halves together with the mixture and place on a serving plate.
Puree the other raspberries together with some icing sugar. Keep tasting until you have it right and put in a jug for serving.
Sieve icing sugar over your cake.
When serving a delicious slice of meringue, pour over the raspberry sauce.
