Try a family-sized dessert for Purim - a fruit-filled galette in a triangular shape.
For Purim, make this cake in miniature loaf pans and pack 2 or 3 of them in each Purim basket.
Hamantaschen, the traditional triangular Ashkenazic Purim pastries, are typically a sweet treat. I’ve taken a savory approach here, using spring herbs, a Persian favorite, to honor Esther and Mordechai’s heritage, as well as the season.
This recipe is a variation of fried Italian dough, which was commonly prepared in Italian kitchens, but had no association wit Purim. It is a perfect example of one ethnic holiday custom infiltrating general society.
Use leftover hamantaschen filling in this delicious poppy seed cake!
