Hamantaschen translates to "Haman's pockets."It has to do with the Jewish holiday of Purim, based on a story int he book of Esther, and I will not attempt to explain it here.  I just don't know enough.  But we should be nomming on these and stealing from Haman's pockets, because he was an evil evil man. 

I had some prune lekvar and some pastry dough leftover from making rugelach, so I made hamantaschen! 

According to Wikipedia, one should drink on Purim until he can no longer distinguish between the phrases arur Haman ("Cursed is Haman") and baruch Mordechai ("Blessed is Mordecai").  Sounds like a fun holiday to me!
