Hamentaschen

If you have ever sung or hummed the lyrics, “My hat it has three corners, three corners has my hat, and had it not three corners, it wouldn’t be my hat,” you were singing about this three-cornered, Jewish cookie. Traditionally eaten during the holiday of Purim, the name is most likely a derivation of Haman, an Old Testament antagonist, who wore a three-cornered hat, or a corruption of the German word mohntaschen, meaning poppy seed-filled pouches. You won’t be too worried about the cookie’s etymology as you bite into one of these fruit-filled cookies. Available in apricot, blueberry, blueberry cheese, cherry, cherry cheese, raspberry and its namesake poppy seed.
