Holiday Recipe – Purim Hamantaschen


  • 500 g flour
  • 200 g butter
  • 200 g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • apricot jam with ginger
  • pistachio butter  (available in italian delicacy stores)
  • nut-nougat spread



  1. prepare a classic shortbread dough  
  2. mix flour, butter, sugar and the egg
  3. knead the dough on a flat surface, form into a ball and refrigerate for 30 minutes
  4. roll out the dough and cut into 10 cm circles
  5. but some nut butter or jam in the middle of each circle and fold up three sides, so that they overlap each other
  6. bake the hamantaschen for appr. 10-12 minutes medium high heat.  


Basically you can make the Hamantaschen with all imaginable fillings. In Tel Aviv I liked the poppy seed filled version best.
