I like the apricot. I'm not that big on everything apricot, but apricot Hamentashen is good.

I've had it, and it's way too good.

Oh, and please get me some Hamentashan -- prune or apricot -- either one will do. Not keen on poppy.
OMG, cinnamon bread is SO ADDICTING!!!!! o.0
And HUMENTASCHEN! I saw the thread title, "Jewish Desserts", and flashed on humentaschen!!!!!!! It's all so good! We don't have a Jewish deli in my town. I need to get back to the West Coast, for access to that particular slice of civilization. ....*sigh*

one reason people with health or food concerns like "Jewish foods" is they are clearly marked if they contain dairy (very helpful for people who have a dairy allergy); clearly marked if they are parve (= no meat, and no dairy) (very helpful for people who avoid meat). Also many health conscious people prefer kosher meat because it rejects animal carcassess that are found to be diseased after slaughter, which are still sold on the market anyway as not kosher.

I can go to Italy and eat bread and pasta all day long because GMOs are illegal but not here.

Wheat is very different now than what it used to be.
There is NO GMO wheat in the US. All modern wheat is hybridized and there are many varieties; some contain more gluten than others, but NO wheat sold in the US has GMOs. This myth needs to die.

The best Jewish desert seems to be the Negev.

Oh wait. Never mind.

My daughter used to date a guy born in Germany. He said they call black-and-white cookies "Americans".

What do you mean by a Jewish Dessert? Ashkenazi? Sephardic? Yemite? Morrocan? They are all different borrowing ingredients from what was available locally. Babka is none of the above. You will find that various East European cultures have some variation of it, including Kokash. Sephardic desserts might incorporate figs, pomegranates, or pistachio nuts, while Askenazi tend to use Walnuts. Rugelach is East European/Askenazi. "Honey Balls" is a New Year dessert and there might be a gluten free recipe for that. The Israelis have jelly donuts for Hanukah rather than the Askenazi potato pancakes. German/Austrian Jews love their strudel, but I don't consider that a "Jewish" dessert even though it is often part of a Jewish meal.
