Purim Cookies


3/4 butter, softened

3/4 sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2  1/4 cups flour

Variety of fillings (I used fig jam)

Sugar, for sprinkling.

These triangular-shape pastries are called “Hamantaschen” (Haman’s ears) and are eaten during the Jewish holiday of Purim, celebrated last Thursday March 8th (Gregorian calendar) which commemorates the time when the Jewish people were saved from extermination by the courage of a young Jewish woman called Esther.

I made them because I have also been delivered from death!

“But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head”

  1. Hmm. Sounds like there is a story here. What is your HIS-story that makes you say “I made them because I have also been delivered from death!” other than the obvious — our salvation in Christ?

  2. Andres,
    The Purim Cookie recipe was so timely. When our younger son and his family were visiting here last week, we stopped at a market and
    Peter bought 2 lbs of Purim Cookies. Some were poppy, apricot and
    prune. We enjoyed them immensely. Thank you for sharing, and may
    God continue to bless and protect your ministry.
