“As you know , Hamantaschen , or as they are called in Israel , Oznei Haman (Haman"s Ears) are the traditional food for Purim . The recipe for the dough was brought home from school by my eldest daughter , now 35 , in 5th grade , and the filling I put together from a few recipes I found in various cook books . It is a bit of work , but my 5 grown kids always ask for them . So this time I did the dough one time , the filling another time , & this morning when I woke up early I got them together & in the oven . My work colleagues are already sending the compliments my way .”
