PURIM HAMANTASCHEN FILLED WITH DELICIOUS JUBLI COCOA SESAME BUTTER

Hamantaschen

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.
