Does anyone know where to get soft hamentaschen (i.e., with a danish-type pastry as opposed to a cookie-type pastry)anymore? Long ago, Louis Lichtmann on Amsterdam & 86th (or thereabouts) was the place to go. They closed. Jon Vie had them, though around Purim only. Then they closed. Help!
Does Moishe's on 2nd Ave have them? Any other ideas? I'm looking for mohn (poppyseed) particularly....
TIA and asheynem dank in advance ,too.
The way I phrase it is "yeast hamantashen" vs "cookie hamantashen". When I was growing up the yeast style was the most prevalent. Nowadays the cookie-tashen reigns supreme. I wonder why that is?
Gruenebaums Bakery (in Washington Heights) often has the yeast style for a week or so surrounding Purim, but they are frequently sold out. My suggestion would be to call before going, and maybe they will put aside several for you. They offer the cookie style year-round and never sell out of these.
