Do you open or close the tops of your hamentaschen?February 27, 2017 4:41 am at 4:41 am #1226056JosephParticipant
I never saw a closed one.February 27, 2017 6:14 am at 6:14 am #1226057
The kind that is pinched shut where the dough covers the filling

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.February 27, 2017 11:26 am at 11:26 am #1226059iacisrmmaParticipant

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 seedsFebruary 28, 2017 3:03 am at 3:03 am #1226062hujuParticipant
Open hamantaschen. Closed coffin.February 28, 2017 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #1226063
Open Sesame. Closed Hamentaschen.February 28, 2017 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #1226064
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.

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.March 1, 2017 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm #1226066
IMS: That’s such a cute idea 🙂 🙂 🙂

The Kosher Products Safety Commission once recalled closed hamantaschen because they exploded when they were bitten.March 13, 2017 10:16 am at 10:16 am #1226068
Are there people who actually like hamantashen?March 13, 2017 10:23 am at 10:23 am #1226069rebshidduchParticipant
I want hamenteschen! I did not have any!March 13, 2017 12:43 pm at 12:43 pm #1226070iacisrmmaParticipant
LU: Depending on the filling, YES (purposely shouting). My wife makes a blueberry filled one and my niece makes a chocolate filled one.March 13, 2017 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #1226071MenoParticipant
I had one one bite of a hamantashen, but it was after shkiyah.
Was I yotzei?
I said l’sheim yichudMarch 14, 2017 12:28 am at 12:28 am #1226072
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.March 14, 2017 1:50 am at 1:50 am #1226073
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.
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?March 14, 2017 1:55 am at 1:55 am #1226074big dealParticipant
You mean there are people out there who don’t enjoy hamentaschen?March 14, 2017 2:29 am at 2:29 am #1226075
big deal: Agreed, with your questionMarch 14, 2017 9:55 pm at 9:55 pm #1226076
I do like chocolate ones actually. And strawberry jelly ones are okay. That’s it that I can think of.March 26, 2017 12:07 am at 12:07 am #1243528Bookworm120Participant
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. 😛March 26, 2017 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #1244274yitzymotchaParticipant
It’s supposed to be closed because of hester but then we’d never know the flavor when we buy them.
