Marbled oreo hamantaschen
Happy Purim! Made Smitten Kitchen’s marbled hamantaschen with black cocoa.
I’m not Jewish and while I don’t think food is always a perfect gateway to a culture I do appreciate that it gives me a reason to learn more things about the people around me. These cookies are the signature food of Purim, which celebrates when Esther saved the Jewish people from her evil cousin Haman. The holiday ends tonight, which is why you might have seen a lot of stuffed triangle shaped cookies this week.
