Hamantaschen cookies! a whole history behind the scenes !



While Jews celebrated the Holiday of Purim last week, this is the occasion to cook, and also learn from History. Cooking is also a great way to engage kids as there is always something fun to share.

The Jewish Holiday of Purim celebrates the saving of the Jewish people from Haman (one of the old Persian Empire officials / vilains) and the whole story is  included in the Book of Esther.

This is the holiday of Carnival where kids are having fun as they wear costumes and enjoy eating those Hamantaschen cookies…and of course like in any holidays, people eat, drink and have fun.

If you want to know more about the origin of these cookies, watch the video below.

Hamantaschen filled with strawberry and blueberry jam.

So, now let’s talk about the cooking part!

Most commonly, the cookies can be found in supermarkets or grocery stores in the US during the Jewish holiday. The Hamantashen (or Haman’s ears) are triangular filed-pocket cookies…

If you try the recipe, you will see that there is a lot of butter, a lot of sugar and you will understand why it is so good!

I selected one video of this recipe – feel free to try and enjoy!
