What is it? Delicious.

Our friend and food blogger Debs Gardner made us a hamantaschen in the shape of Sierpinski’s triangle. Now in addition to being generated by recursive subtraction, chaotic games, and L-systems (seriously, if you haven’t yet seen Dan’s talk on this, watch it because it’s good), Sierpinski’s triangle has been made by sticky prune filling and delicate flaky dough. It’s almost too good to be true.

Check out Debs’ blog at, where she talks about the process of making the Sierpinskitaschen, a truly original piece of baking and mathematics.
