I made a batch of hamentashen yesterday, the triangle-shaped cookies eaten at Purim. I only made two kinds this year, since I didn't like the cherry filling I bought. I made some with a Nutella filling; and some with apricot-almond. For the dough I used Kim's delicious recipe, here: http://www.slowtrav.com/blog/kim/archives/003721.html
Here's how I make the apricot-almond filling (which is also a nice "jam.")
Put 1 cup dried apricots and 2 Tbs. honey in a small saucepan. Add water just to cover. Simmer for 1/2 hour, or until apricots have begun to soften. Add 2 Tbs. toasted almonds. Put apricot mixture into a food processor, straining out most of the liquid. Puree, adding just enough liquid back to make a jammy consistency. Add a tablespoon Amaretto, and more honey to taste.
