Free! Maamaoul or Syrian Pastries. Ma'amoul are luscious fruit-filled pastries that have a strong Syrian connection but many versions of them abound from other Middle Eastern countries as well. They're perfect for Purim or anytime you're serving a huge teapot of Darjeeling with cardamon. Enjoy holiday baking notes of Purim, St. Pat's with free Hamantashen recipes such as Blueberry Cheesecake Hamantashen, wonderful Greek Cinnamon Cookies and some hearty Free Rustic Sprouted Wheat Bread. All that and more in March 2017 A Note from Marcy

There's hamantashen that we know and fresh approaches. Check this one out from the website Busy In Brooklyn. It's totally inspired! (I'd opt for Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Hamantashen using traditional dough but I love the creativity of this approach). There's also over 36 outstanding hamantashen ideas, including Red Velvet, Sprinkles, Egg Roll, Taco and Pecan Pie Hamantashen over at
