Slacker Hamentashen – How to Make Purim Treats with Just Two Ingredients & a Toaster

Originally published on

created at: 2011-03-11A week or two ago, I posted a recipe that foolishly claimed to be The Easiest Hamentashen Recipe on the Internet. Liz, our community manager, rightfully pointed out that any recipe with seven ingredients and nine steps can’t possibly be the easiest, and we challenged ourselves to concoct a new recipe that could be made in a dorm room without a kitchen.

Taking our inspiration from Sandra Lee, we decided to make “Slacker Hamentashen,” using only store-bought pie-crust and filling. That’s right–two ingredients. And we baked them in our office toaster over. Check out the video for our “recipe,” technique, and taste-test.

A big thank you to our intern, Michelle Goldberg, for her fine camerawork! And to for being a better video-editing tool than I ever expected to find for free on the web.
