Ha! I’ve been wanting to make that pun for years! To ruin the joke, Haman is the villain of the Purim story. Yeah, I know, there really wasn’t that much to spoil.

I apologize for not running a bake sale this time, especially because I had a cause I really wanted to support and because charity is such a big part of this holiday, but life has just been kind of strange and wacky lately. Hopefully, later this year. In the meantime, please enjoy this obscenely close look at a batch of this year’s Hamantaschen. It’s like you’re actually in the bowl!

Happy Purim!

    I don’t know, Becca, but you might just have created a whole new trend in Jewish holiday observance. I imagine a day when my children will tell their children that all Jewish holidays can be summed up by saying, “They tried to kill us. We won. Let’s…look at pictures of food from 2008.”

    Especially if the economy never rebounds.

    Becca, those are gorgeous. I’ll have to settle for the ones at Whole Foods.

    Next bake sale, count me in!

  3. Becca says:

    Alex, I resent that. Are you saying I gave out cookies from last year?

    Thanks, Paige! Brother1 says they came out especially well this year so I’m even sorrier. But we’ll do it again soon for sure.

    Oops! Not at all, Becca. I do see now that your post clearly states that these hamentaschen are from this year.

    Hard to believe I got an M.A. in English with those reading skills, isn’t it?

    And I second what Paige said. Unless, you know, I misread it.

    No, I just imagine you have other things on your mind just now. 😉
