It’s On The Inside That Counts – Hamantashen Fillings

When I think of hamantaschen, the first thing that comes to mind is their delicious fruit centers. That’s why I chuck store-bought jelly and canned pie fillings in favor of my own homemade versions—giving my Purim cookies other worldly dimensions.
When most people take a bite of a hamantaschen that is completely homemade, filling and all, they don’t know what to do with themselves—the taste is that good. Once you try one of these renditions, you’ll never go back to the canned.

Poppy Seed Filling

Apricot Filling

Date Nut Filling

Wild Blueberry Filling


In case you want something a little less fruity you should try one of these from Chef Laura.

Rosewater Almond Filling

Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
