‘Twas the night before Purim, when all through the house (the White House, that is) no creature was hungry, not even a mouse.
The White House Office of Public Engagement released a statement Friday telling the story of Purim and sharing not one, but two hamantaschen-related recipes.
The first recipe, titled “Easy Hamantaschen,” is for the traditional, sweet Ashkenazic cookie with an orange-zest twist. For something on the savory side, they also shared a recipe for the more labor-intensive Spinach and Cheese Burekas.
