As you probably know, Purim (a Jewish holiday celebrating the saving of the Jewish people from Haman, who planned to kill all the Jews) is quickly coming and for myself personally, we have even more celebrations in. It’s not only my birthday, but my husbands, my sister, my niece, my mother-in-law, and a few other relatives. Plus, my husband and I are celebrating our anniversary. All in one month! PHEW! You can definitely say that this is a month of happiness and joy for my family :)
To sweeten all these events, I am sharing a delicious chocolate hamantaschen cookies that are a traditional Purim dessert. The dough contains cocoa powder and makes the cookies chocolaty and yummy. (That’s all anyone wants to hear when it comes to cookies, right?!) For vanilla hamantaschen, check out my recipe from last year - vegan hamantaschen cookies.
Maybe you’ve never heard of hamantaschen cookies? These cookies are famous for their triangle shape and always contain some form filling. This time, because the dough has dark color, I wanted to use a filling that can be seen so I chose a white chocolate spread, although you can use any spread you like, such as peanut butter, jelly, milk chocolate spread, Nutella etc.
To celebrate my birthday properly, I will also share another yummy dessert recipe soon – stay tuned!
Recipe yields approximately 16 cookies.
Enjoy this fabulous month and this easy to make recipe!
