Cocktails & Confections: Raspberry Hamantashen

ICON_CocktailsConfectionsThese cookies are sweet and soft and crumbly and amazing. But the ingredients made it hard to create a cocktail that completely captured its essence. This is what they're made of: enriched flour, butter, baking powder, sugar, whole eggs, whey, raspberries, and water. Not the most exciting materials to work with! I would not say that the final drink has any resemblance to the cookies, but both are still individually delicious. DSC_0267

Based on that list, I took some liberties. Here's the recipe I created that I think you'll love.
