Let us share our magic with
you today by celebrating Purim together with the recipe of


Story:  Purim commemorates the salvation of the
Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s
plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and
women, in a single day,” as recorded in the 
Megillah (book of Esther). The most famous Purim food is hamantaschen, Yiddish
for “Haman’s pockets”, also known in Hebrew as oznay Haman meaning
“Haman’s ears.”




of salt

teaspoon baking powder

1/2 – 3 cups all-purpose flour


teaspoon vanilla

cup sugar

seed or nut butter, for filling

cup pareve margarine or butter


Cream the shortening
with sugar. Add egg and continue creaming until smooth.

Add the vanilla. Stir
in the sifted flour, baking powder, and salt until a ball of dough is formed (a
food processor is excellent for this).

Chill for 2-3 hours,
or overnight.

Preheat oven to 375

Taking 1/4 of the
dough, roll out on a lightly floured board to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Cut
circles of dough with a drinking glass or round cookie-cutter. With your finger
put water around the rim of the circle. Fill with 1 teaspoon poppy-seed or nut
filling and fold into three-cornered cookies. (Press two sides together, and
then fold the third side over and press the ends together.)

Bake on a well-greased
cookie sheet 10-16 minutes, until the tops are golden.
