Thanks to Al for contributing this recipe.

These triangular "cookies" are known as Hamantashen or Haman's hats, the most popular sweet made at Purim. One legend tell us that the three corners of the cookie represent Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the founding fathers of Judaism. But the more popular story is that they are shaped like the three cornered hat worn by Haman. Yields 4 dozen.

 • 1 tsp. salt
 • 1 egg, beaten for glazing
