The Best Hamantaschen Fillings for Your Purim Cookies

purim-recipes

What should you fill your hamantaschen with? These Purim cookies come in a variety flavors—and if you make your own you can pick and choose what fillings you want to use. Even though the original treats were stuffed with poppy seed filling, you don’t have to go with the tried and true version of the cookie. If you’re looking for something different, check out these sweet, savory and sometimes creative filling ideas!

Fruit

Plenty of classic hamantaschen recipes include fruit filling. Unlike an apple pie or pear tart, these baked goods are stuffed with a jam or jelly-like fruit filling. Top picks your family may enjoy include raspberry, apricot, strawberry, or prune. If you’re not sure which one to try, mix a few fruit flavors or add a hint of sweet, sweet chocolate to the recipe.

Chocolate

If you don’t want to add chocolate to your fruit-filled cookies, try hamantaschen filled entirely with the sweet treat. Choose milk or dark chocolate, or go with white chocolate. You can even add a drop of food coloring to white chocolate to make rainbow-hued cookies.

Nut Butter

Add peanut butter to your fruit-filled cookies to make pb and j hamantaschen, or use almond butter for a savory/sweet treat.
