The joyous festival of Purim, a Jewish celebration of survival begins at sundown on February, 27th 2010 (Saturday). It ends at sundown on February, 28th 2010 (Sunday). Among the favorite foods of the festival are Hamantaschen. A traditional pastry of the feast, hamantaschen is a delicious triangular-shaped dough bursting with poppy seed filling. (We like it with our Prune Lekvar and the Chocolate Schmear is also delicious in this dough.)
The dough for these flaky cookies is easy to make. Enlist a friend or two to help roll out and fill the little triangular shapes before baking.
