Hamantashen from Grandma

My grandmother sent these to me for the Jewish holiday of Purim. They are called hamantashen, to commemorate Haman, the bad guy who wanted to kill the Jews, but who was hanged instead. The cookies are in the shape of his three-point hat. And yes, Grandma made them vegan.

Grandma is 92 years old and still bakes. She's the healthiest 92 year-old I know. In fact, she walks on a treadmill for half an hour a day. People where she lives are in awe of her, and every so often she has "pupils" who join her to exercise. I can only hope I'm that healthy when I get to be her age.
