Gourmet Hamentaschen Giveaway!

What is your favorite hamentaschen flavor?

We tried to make them with pumpkin once, but they didn’t turn out as well as we’d hoped. Maybe because the pumpkin butter just wasn’t very good. Apricot is always a favorite, as is chocolate (one Hershey’s kiss in the middle or lots of chips mixed into the dough both work).

What’s your secret ingredient? We put orange juice in the dough. Not much of a secret, but it’s something different than your ordinary cookie.

Comment on this post with a link to for your chance to win a tin of gourmet hamentaschen! Make sure to leave us with your contact information so we can notify you if you win. We’ll be picking the winner at random on Monday, February 15.

Edit: And the winner is: Melissa! Congratulations, and enjoy!

  1. My favorite hamentaschen flavor is apricot. I never tried to make them myself.

  2. My favorite flavors raspberry and chocolate… separate, not combined. Although that may be something to explore.. 🙂 I haven’t made them in years since it was a Hebrew school project. This year I may have to get after a batch and see if they are as good as I remember. Cool giveaway!

  3. I love almond poppy seed hamentashen, but cranberry white chocolate is also a nice variation. The ones on look tasty.

  4. I love the combination of salt, vanilla, chocolate, and walnuts. 🙂


  6. My favorite flavor is cinnamon apple in the winter and strawberry in the summer! So yummy!!!

  7. My favorite is lemon poppy seed.

  8. Hmmm, I have so many favorites – apricot, strawberry, chocolate. I’ve never had them this way, but I would love some covered with white chocolate.

    Thanks for the contest!

  9. my favorite hamantash flavor is prune butter with tiny bits of dried apricots.. i came up with it last year and it was a hit. also i add a bit of orange zest to the dough along with the orange juice, irresistable!

  10. My favorites are raspberry and poppy seed. I also add a bit of orange juice and zest to give it that magic purim flavor.

  11. Love the chocolate ones!

  12. love the chocolate and poppy seed ones!

    the secret is to never EVER use jelly – only butters. ie- apricot butter, prune butter etc. its about a billion times better.
