Purim Luck

A couple months ago I found a reusable bag full of these in celebration of Purim (it's a very Jewish area):

The bag has since been lost (I hate when I leave them in the shopping cart) but I did learn about this holiday:

Purim is one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar. It commemorates a time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination.

It's basically a Jewish Mardis Gras. Minus the cause for bead throwing.

Anyway, the recipe above is for hamentaschen. It's a jam filled pocket. I haven't tried it yet but that's what the round cookie cutter is for. The biscotti and granola bar didn't stand a chance.

Have you found anything surprisingly fun and educational and possibly edible?
