How many ways are there to bake hamantashen? Probably more than you think. Plus kreplach and a host of other delicious Purim recipes.

As the day that celebrates the salvation of the physical existence of the Jewish people, Purim is the most physical of the festivals. Its observances include giving gifts of money to the poor, sending food portions to friends, and eating a sumptuous meal accompanied by plentiful drink in the closing hours of the festival.

Hamantashen and kreplach, both with their fillings hidden inside, allude to the hidden nature of the Purim miracle. On a lighter note, the three-pointed hamantashen are said to evoke Haman’s three-pointed hat or his triangular ears.

In addition to recipes for these two Purim traditions, we have included a number of recipes you can use for the Purim feast.

The other day someone asked what my plans are for Purim. I think, like every other parent of food-allergic children, my heart skipped a beat and sunk to my feet . . .

Okay, I am going to give this a try! My bubbie (I am one now-i.e., grandmother) made a flat apple pie on a cookie sheet. It was a cross between a cookie & strudel dough, and it was sliced and eaten by hand. Does anyone have such a recipe. I would very much appreciate a recipe I could use.

Thanks so much!!!!! ~ Carole

Kosher Cream Cheese in Canada? YES !!!
I am replying to Janice Barley's comment about Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

I'm not sure why the comments are from previous years but I wanted to inform the readers that there are many Kosher Cream Cheese products sold in Toronto.

I am not Jewish but I often purchase Kosher Products, including Chicken, because I prefer the taste and know that they are "clean".

I live in an area of Toronto where many Orthodox Jews live. The most popular Cream Cheese available everywhere is made by WESTERN CREAMERY (certified Kosher). The taste and texture is far superior to Philadelphia Cream Cheese. There are also numerous Jewish Dairy Stores in Toronto: Daiter's and United Bakery that also sells the best Pea Soup and Cheesecake in the city.

yeast hamentashen
Ii am searching for the old-fashioned South African recipe for yeast Hamentashen with Poppy seed (mon) filling or cheese filling. Does anybody have the recipe and also, I live in Canada so what cheese would you use for the filling as Philadelphia cream cheese just doesn't cut it.
Hope something can help

Our bible study Purim celebration
My bible study just finished studying Beth Moore's "Esther: It's Hard Being a Woman" study and we are bringing in foods eaten during Purim to end our study. I've really loved this study and have loved looking through these wonderful recipes. Thank you for sharing!

I am a Christian and always looking for ways to celebrate things/people Jewish! A visiting Professor from Jerusalem drew my attention to the Purim celebration. So I made Hamanstaschen as an after-school snack for the first time. They were really popular! I reminded the children about the story of Esther. Remembering is s---o important!
