Purim is a Jewish festival, celebrating the victory over the evil Haman as described in the book of Esther. Traditionally both sweet and savory small bites are offered as part of the buffet.
This Purim treat, a sweet butter cookie, is formed into a triangle and then folded over on the edges to encase a center filled with a sweet filling, typically poppy seed. These cookies come together in just a matter of minutes, and are a sure fire hit on your Purim buffet.
A sambusak is a savory phyllo dough pastry filled with spiced chickpea mixture that is enjoyed by Iraqi Jews on Purim. This pastry features a spicy blend of garbanzo beans, cumin, turmeric, and a little parsley for color.
Ground Beef Kreplach
The kreplach are triangular pouches of dough filled with ground beef and vegetables. They are eaten as a separate dish or served in a simple broth. These savory bites are traditionally served on festive Jewish holidays.
