All Hamantashen Recipes and Fillings


It wouldn’t be Purim without hamantashen, the three-corner pastries shaped like the evil Haman’s hat. They are an expression of our wish to completely “consume” our enemies – and fun for the kids to boot. We are always searching for the best hamantashen recipes (Let us know which one you prefer or sent in yet another!) We have listed a variety here – some of our favorites and some contest entries – for you to try. Rolling out the dough is a bit of an effort so it’s wise to try to make them in advance – but be sure to save some for Purim!!
These cookies are traditionally filled with prune, poppy or fruit fillings (see recipes below) but can be filled with any preserve or filling of your liking. Be creative; try peanut butter and marshmallow fluff for your kids, or homemade applesauce with cinnamon for the apple pie lover)
