What about Nutella? Anyone ever try that? For my money, Purim ain’t Purim unless the hamantashen filling is prune lekvar to which I have added finely chopped walnuts, lemon juice, and allspice. Otherwise, it is just a triangular cookie.February 18, 2010 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm #674357
I can’t use anything with nuts due to allergies in the family. Potsandpans,I’m a little afraid to try something untested and possibly ruin a batch of hamantashen.There must be someone out there who has a tried-and-true recipe for this…February 18, 2010 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #674358
Here’s a tried and true recipe from the OU weekly newsletter:
