    Hey Berry! Made your Hamantashen Cookies for my very picky Jewish husband yesterday and he loved them! He wants me to try them with prune filling next. Thank you for the post and Happy Holidays!

    Annie the history that ties into the hat shape cookie is impotent to the culture. I am glad you passed it on to us.

    This recipe sounds so good and your step by step photos are so helpful.

    Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

    Flagged as beautiful and unique.

    Wow, no way! We had this Bible story video of Esther and Haman had a triangle hat, but I just always figured the animators made that up. But triangle hats always make me think of Haman. I might have to make these just because of that.
