Purim starts tonight, and although I found a Jewish bakery in W. Orange that was selling Hamentaschen, I can't say that I loved them--the dough was just too sweet for me.

For those of you who don't know, Hamentaschen are the triangle-shaped cookies with a filling of prune, apricot, raspberry, or even poppy seeds. You'll see them this time of year because they're a food associated with the celebration of Purim, which involves a whole Megillah I won't go in to here... :-)

A conversation with my dad this morning yielded intel I didn't have: there are bakeries that make them using a yeast (vs. cookie) dough. Anyone know of any in NE NJ? I didn't want to restrict the thread by saying northern NJ b/c there may be other MOTs looking for them to, so let us know--where are your favorites?
