Bake THESE For Purim
Here in Kosher.com land, we feel like Purim is practically tomorrow! If you’re not knee deep in Purim mishloach manos plans yet though, don’t worry. We have some super ideas that you can make ahead and still wow all those neighbors with. Let them think you started baking at the crack of dawn on Purim morning, we won’t tell.
- Cranberry Pecan Biscotti by Estee Kafra
Biscotti always look beautiful, and these Cranberry Pecan Biscotti are no exception! Rich, yet not heavy, you can pair them with a nice tea or coffee beverage for a perfect mishloach manos that might even have the kids passing on the laffy taffies for. (I mean, we can hope, can’t we?)
Mini White Cheese Danishes by Rivky Kleiman
How to Make Friends and Influence People has a whole chapter on the kind of affect Mini White Cheese Danishes can have on random people (we’re kidding, but only barely). Seriously prepare yourself for an onslaught of new friends, because everyone’s going to want to get one of these, believe us.
- Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins by Rivky Kleiman
Shockingly, not everyone is a chocolate fan. Not that we’re judging. Delicious and bright Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are a beautiful alternative! The vanilla yogurt keeps the batter light but substantial, and allows that amazing lemon flavor to really shine. Make an extra batch of these for yourself, you won’t regret it!
Double Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies by Estee Kafra
Now we’re talking. We would have made this if they were only SINGLE peanut chocolate chip cookies, but DOUBLE? We are sold!! For a non-peanut alternative, try these with almond butter and chopped almonds, and watch them disappear. Better hide these until packaging time!
- Peppermint Pinwheels by Brynie Greisman
Colorful and fun, these Peppermint Pinwheel cookies are the perfect choice if you want to match your baked item to a color theme! The peppermint extract gives these cool cookies a fun twist that will totally wow the crowd.
- S’mores Squares by Estee Kafra
What’s better than a brownie, neater than s’mores, and more delicious than anything you’ve ever tasted before? These heavenly S’mores Squares, obv. Warning: you may think you’re making them to give away, and somehow decide to keep them all for yourself. We recommend arranging a backup juuuust in case.
Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake By Brynie Greisman
Well, is everyone you know baking cookies? Let them eat cake, we say! Well, we didn’t actually say that first, but we’re saying it now, and that’s all that matters. Make this gorgeous Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake Bundt for the special people on your mishloach manos list (mother-in-law worthy!) or make them in minis so you can spread the love to everyone.
