In my quest for all things cookie-related, I’ve learned so much about other people’s cultures. For instance, hamanstachen are triangular cookies filled with fruit marmalade or poppy seeds. They are made for the Jewish holiday of Purim, which observes the deliverance of Jewish people from the hands of Haman (the story is recorded in the book of Esther in the Bible). I have only seen the fruit-filled version, so I was delighted to discover these Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies that sound like they’d be perfect with a cup of tea any time of the year.
