This particular vegan sweet pairs really well, I mean decadently, with a chocolate filling. Think nutella, melted dark chocolate chips, you get the idea. You can also get wild with whatever jams or jellies you have on hand, a lemon or lime curd, or your favorite nut or seed butter. I’ve seen an impressive uptick in creative hamantaschen filling this year and am looking for a vegan spin on a cheesecake filled triangle–any takers?
Purim has always been a favorite holiday. Who doesn’t love a reason to get dressed up in costume and fiend on sugary sweets in the midst of winter? I remember making these delectable treats every year with the older ladies in the synagogue kitchen, pinching my squished ends to match their perfect triangles, a mess of poppy seed filling around the opening, but delicious nonetheless.
You’ll love this celebratory recipe. It’s the perfect time to share a few bites with your friends and family and shake a noisy grogger. Let us know if you give this a try! #closedloopcooking
