Linda asked what other pastries for Purim. Well here is a sweet that is not a pastry or a cookie but a delightfully delicious and easy to make sweet that I include in my shalach manot gifts. It's especially fun to make with the children (and grandchildren, of course) because it's fast and there's not baking or real cooking involved. When it's not Purim, we call them spiders, but on Purim we call them "Purim Patties". Makes about 3 dozen Mix the noodles and peanuts in a large bowl and set aside. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler (NOT in the microwave) and, when melted, mix with the noodle peanut mix. Mix well so that everything is coated with the chocolate. Drop by teaspoonsful onto a waxpaper-covered cookie sheet until set. (In humid Florida I sometimes set them in the refrigerator.) These keep indefinitely, in the event there are any left over.
