<<< Found this comment from a blog of Jewish cooking.

"In The World of Jewish Cooking, Gil Marks claims that hamentaschen were
originally made with yeast pastry dough, and that the sweet cookie  
dough is
quite recent." >>>

Okay, from a non-pastry baker. What is the difference between "yeast  
pastry dough" and "sweet cookie dough"? Sweet cookie dough doesn't  
have yeast? Or pastry dough doesn't have sugar/honey added?
