Buttermilk Tea Cookies
A favorite of my family's (especially of the under-10set), these cookies are traditionally called "taralles." They start as a very simple batter-like dough that bakes up more like a cake than a cookie. In our house, we would put a lemony icing on top and add fun colored sprinkles. They are very easy to love. Dave came up with a more adult version (though I can't imagine any kid hesitating for one second before popping one of these into her mouth) that incorporates cornmeal and buttermilk. When he first made them, I thought, "Why is he messing with perfection?" But after tasting the new version, I must say, perfection took on a whole new meaning.  Click here to see How to Make Perfect Cookie Dough.

Poppy Seed Cake with Lemon Glaze
Why do we eat poppy seeds on Purim? The tradition finds roots in the intermarriage between Queen Esther and her husband Ahasuerus, the king of Persia. Esther was Jewish, King Ahasuerus was not. When Esther came to live in the king’s palace, tradition says she became a vegetarian in order to avoid eating food that was not kosher. She got her protein from nutrient-rich seeds, nuts, and legumes. Many Jewish families celebrate Purim with a vegetarian meal in honor of Esther, which includes items like chickpeas, nuts, and — you guessed it — poppy seeds! This poppy seed cake has dairy in it, making it a good choice as the sweet ending of a vegetarian kosher meal. It’s pretty rich, so I’ve used low-fat dairy to take some of the guilt out. I highly recommend the warm lemon glaze; it takes this cake to a whole new level of yum.

Hamantaschen
I love poppy seeds, but I never enjoyed bakery hamantaschen because I didn’t like the sturdy, sweet dough. I therefore decided to create the hamantaschen of my dreams with dough that is tender, slightly flaky, very buttery, and vanilla imbued (pictured on page 380). Elliott and I like the crunch of poppy seeds, so I do not cook the seeds into a smooth paste, but I do offer directions for those who prefer it. Solo makes a good quality poppy seed filling; if you substitute it, be sure to add the lemon zest and apricot lekvar or preserves. — Rose Levy Beranbaum, The Baking Bible
