Delicious buttery cookies for any occasion.
Purim is the Jewish holiday in which we commemorate being saved from persecution in the ancient Persian Empire. A symbolic food eaten during the holiday of Purim is hamentaschen (“ears of Haman”). Haman is the villain of the Purim story. This triangular-shaped cookie is supposed to represent either Haman’s ears or his three-cornered hat. The center of each “hat” is filled with delicious Jubli Cocoa Sesame Butter.
