does anyone have a simple hamantashen recipe that is quick to make, makes no mess but taste delicious?February 21, 2010 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #675040shev143Member
Iwould love a recipe where the filling stays in the cookie and doesn’t squirt out all over the cookie sheets – Anyone?February 21, 2010 3:48 pm at 3:48 pm #675041LAerMember
The easiest way to get the filling to stay in is to use pie filling rather than jelly. Everyone I know who uses jelly complains that it leaks, but pie filling generally doesn’t. Also, make sure that the corners are really pinched together tightly and it shouldn’t be a problem. Good luck!February 22, 2010 1:07 am at 1:07 am #675042lakewoodwifeParticipant
Pie filling does work well. There is a great filling available from Baker’s Choice. It comes in Strawberry, raspberry and apricot. It does NOT leak! (even if your corners aren’t perfect. If you want to use jam or jelly, mix it with ground nuts.

Lakewood wife thank you so much for ther tip about Baker’s Choice fillings. I need a good apricot filling for my son the p’tchetch.February 22, 2010 1:14 am at 1:14 am #675044anuranParticipant
Also, wet the edges of the cookie and thoroughly seal them just before baking. I haven’t had a batch leak since taking more care with that part.February 22, 2010 1:21 am at 1:21 am #675045
yes, anuran, I also do that. Good tip.February 22, 2010 2:33 am at 2:33 am #675046simchallthetimeMember

i have a great recipe…your local bakery…lolFebruary 25, 2010 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #675049
Oy – I HATE bakery hamantashen. As far as my family is concerned, they only eat mine. It was my mom’s recipe, and STILL the best I have ever tasted, bar none. The prune filling is mixed with a little lemon juice, finely chopped walnuts, and allspice, and I have never tasted another filling as good as that one. The hamantash dough itself is incredible. It is worth the potchkeh once a year.February 25, 2010 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #675050
that does sound REALLy good!:DFebruary 25, 2010 10:52 pm at 10:52 pm #675051
Believe me, it IS!!!!!!!!! It’s a crisper hamantash rather than a very soft delicate cookie, and it has some honey in the dough. But it is the allspice, lemon juice, and nuts in the prune lekvar that really seal the deal.February 25, 2010 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #675052
can i haz hamentash? lol
