Eureka Moment: Barquettes


= Finally understanding why my jam ‘boats’ made with hamantaschen dough wouldn’t stay closed at the ends like those jam cookies which entranced me so much at the Terminal Market in Philadelphia.

They are called barquette molds. Barque means rowboat in French. How amazingly, mind-blowingly cool is that? I’m in love….

Oh, and the delicious mini-pissaladiere barques are from Stephen at Stephen Cooks. Anchovies, onions, olives and cheese, baked in little puff pastry rowboats. Delish.

May this be the last time I ever post such a sad, sad photo:

... and all the little jam passengers drowned. Sigh.
