Parshas Mattos-Masei – מטות-מסעי

This week is a double parsha – Mattos and Masei. The borders of the future land of Eretz Yisroel are specified in parshas Masei.

We made Eretz Yisroel shaped cookies.

1- We used our standard sugar cookie recipe and icing (powdered sugar and warm water). We just used a knife to cut the shape out, it\’s pretty simple.

Sugar Cookies
1 c sugar
1 c shortening
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
3 c flour
Combine all ingredients and mix well, refrigerate for 20 min then roll out, cut shapes, and bake in pre-heated oven at 375 for 10 min
2- We placed 3 blue chocolate lentils as the Kineret and Yam Hamelach.
3- We sprinkled green sugar crystals over the icing for the land.

  1. I was able to guess (when held in the right direction) that these were eretz yisroel cookies even though I didn’t know the parsha. Good job on shaping them!
