crown peaches

After eating all those hamantassen, followed by a seudah , we crown it all with a twist in the tale. This is a deceiving kind of dessert that fits in well with the Purim theme: what you see is not what you get. But no mask can hide the wonderful and delicious taste sensation you are about to experience.
