Try a new angle with this Jewish dessert
With Halloween long over, Purim offers another chance to dress up, eat sweets and celebrate. The Jewish holiday, celebrated this year on March 21, honors Queen Esther, who stood up to the evil Haman when he made plans to annihilate the Jewish people. Similar to the largely celebrated Halloween, kids dress up as the main characters of the story and act out modern interpretations, including making loud noises to block out Haman's name. To add to the festivities, triangular Hamantaschens, resembling Haman's hat, are eaten. These easy desserts can be made in any flavor of filling, to satisfy even the pickiest taste buds.
