Gal Gadot enjoyed spending a little quality time with two of her three children as she stepped into the kitchen for an old-time tradition of making specialty pastries ahead of Purim.
The 36-year-old actress looked completely in her element while shaping dough into Hamantash (or often referred to as Hamantaschen) for the Jewish holiday, which begins on Wednesday and ends on Thursday.
The holiday is known as a joyous occasion celebrating the survival of the Jewish people as told through the Jewish bible’s Scroll of Esther, who was the wife of a Persian king and hid the fact that she was Jewish.
An adviser to the king, Haman, attempted to exterminate the Jews from the Persian Empire and Esther was able to convince the king not to kill the Jews while also saving herself, therein Jewish people celebrate Esther’s act of bravery each year by honoring their communities and families.
‘Purim is one of my favorites holidays and making Hamantash with my girls is definitely one of my favorite things about it,’ she captioned a carousel of images with her daughters.
Hamantash are traditionally triangular shaped shortbread pastries filled with a jam, usually apricot or raspberry, but also often with poppy seed spreads, dates and figs.
The Ashkenazi Jewish dessert was designed in the shape of ‘Haman’s ear,’ the villain in the Purim story, and are a symbol of his ultimate defeat.
Gal rocked a black turtleneck bodysuit and jeans while her little girls, Alma and Maya, sported matching sunglasses as they prepped the cookies.
She slicked back her dark brown hair into a bun and smiled for the camera for the set of photos shared to her 75million followers.
Gadot gave birth to her third daughter, Daniella, in June, with husband Yaron Varsano by her side.
She recently shared a snap of the couple, who have been married for almost 14 years, on a walk and admitted their lives are about to get just a little more chaotic with a packed schedule and a full house.
‘Since the next couple of months are going to be so busy and hectic we decided to spend this beautiful Saturday outdoors in the winter sun, taking some family time off before diving in to some incredibly exciting new projects,’ she wrote.
