Every year, Jewish people celebrate the holiday of Purim. A special cookie is a big part of the holiday.

Hamantaschen are triangular cookies. They symbolize the three-cornered hat of a character from the Purim story.

Hamantaschen originated in Persia. They're sugar cookies filled with sweet jam.

The sides are pinched up to form a triangular, and they're baked to a tasty golden brown.

The sweet cookies are a traditional part of the joyous, sweet holiday celebration.
