When I first learned how to make hamentaschen for Purim, I was taught to pinch the sides. But I found that for the most part the hamentaschen didn’t end up staying together. Last year in search for a recipe that might yield prettier hamentaschen I learned about a folding method. I have found that folding the hamentaschen actually makes prettier looking hamentaschen and if you don’t put too much filling they stay together much better.

Here are some ideas for Hamentaschen fillings:

1. Apple Butter
2. Apricots
3. Brownie (Dairy or Pareve)
4. Heath Bar Crunch (Dairy)
5. Chocolate Chips
6. Jellies
7. Dates
8. Figs
9. Prunes
10. Lite Cherry Pie Filling
11. Nutella (Dairy)
12. Chocolate Spread
