    Do you open or close the tops of your hamentaschen?

    I never saw a closed one.

    The kind that is pinched shut where the dough covers the filling

    The filling is hidden inside

    It’s very hard to keep the hamantaschen closed. When they bake, sometimes it opens up wider than you would like. To me, it’s nice when just a bit peeks through. If it is too open, then too much of the filling can bubble away as it bakes,especially yummy things like blueberries.

    Cookie Dough…open top

    Yeast Raised Dough (pastry consistency) closed because the whole hamentash gets brushed with an egg wash and a very light sprinkle of poppy seeds

    Joseph: Google it and you shall recall.

    Nechomah: Awww now all these warm memories are coming up of opening closed hamentaschens with bubbly centers steaming from the oven.

    Yumm!

    Made pop tart hamantaschen tonight – two triangles of dough on top of each other, filled with jelly and pinched closed all around the sides with a fork. Topped it with icing and sprinkles. SO good.

    The Kosher Products Safety Commission once recalled closed hamantaschen because they exploded when they were bitten.

    LU: Depending on the filling, YES (purposely shouting). My wife makes a blueberry filled one and my niece makes a chocolate filled one.

    I had one one bite of a hamantashen, but it was after shkiyah.

    Was I yotzei?

    I said l’sheim yichud

    Only if it was a k’zayis and if you had in mind that it was Shushan Purim and that you were eating it as a segula to be zoche to keep Shushan Purim next year in Yerushalayim Habenuya, and if you included that in the l’sheim yichud.

    The best thing to have done would have been to have eaten a second k’zayis of hamantashen after tzeis hakochavim and to have had in mind that if the first one was eaten b’zman, then the first one should count for the first day of Purim and the second one for Shushan Purim, but if it was really already Shushan Purim, then the first one should count for Shushan Purim and the second one should be tashlumim for the first day.

    Lilmod Ulelamaid: Do you not like hamentaschen?

    Omgosh Hamentaschen are my FAVORITE!!!

    Poppy seed hamentaschen using the recipe from the big purple Spice and Spirit kosher cookbook. Closed, and it’s okay if some peak open.

    Hamentaschen are so good. I want them for every holiday.

    Hamentaschen instead of sufganiyot.

    Hamentaschen instead of chocolate matzah. Maybe matzah hamentaschen. Or potato-based flour hamentaschen.

    Hamentashen instead of new fruits, maybe new fruits in the hamentaschen.

    Hamentaschen challah.

    I am glad hamen lived and died because he brought us hamentaschen.

    So so YUMMY!!!

    Ditto on the YES that people actually like them.

    What else can be a hamentaschen?

    I do like chocolate ones actually. And strawberry jelly ones are okay. That’s it that I can think of.

    I’m late to the Purim party but I much prefer open-top hamentaschen. Unless I know for a fact that all closed-top hamentaschen have poppy seeds inside. That way, I know what flavor I’m getting.

    Something to keep in mind for next year, I guess. 😛

    It’s supposed to be closed because of hester but then we’d never know the flavor when we buy them.
