Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Hamantaschen

I didn’t grow up with Hamantaschen. I had never really heard of them until I started reading baking blogs. They seem to be kind of a big deal in the States. And I can see why. These basic hamantaschen are desperately easy to make and they are like the pizza of baked confectionary.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Hamantaschen

You can fill these with anything, and even add stuff the the dough. I want to make some apricot jam and sesame seeds in the dough. I don’t have much time to write stuff at the moment. but enjoy this recipe and get ready for a scorching week!! 30° I heard!

Here’s how to make my Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Hamantaschen:

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Hamantaschen


  1. 225g / 8 oz plain flour
  2. 110g / 4 oz butter
  3. 80g / 3 oz sugar
  4. 2 tbsp milk
  5. 200g peanut butter
  6. 100g chocolate chips


  1. Mix the butter, sugar and flour together with your fingertips until it forms breadcrumbs
  2. Add the milk to bring the dough together and mix in. If it's still too dry add a TINY bit more milk OR water until the dough is brought together nicely.
  3. Cling film the pastry and refrigerate for about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C and place grease proof paper on a baking tray.
  5. On a floured surface, roll the dough out so it's about 0.5cm thick, using a circular cutter, cut into equally sized circle.
  6. in the centre of each circle spoon some peanut butter and some chocolate chips - leaving at least 1 cm space around the edge.
  7. Then fold in three equal sized edges in until they meet and make a triangle. Make sure all edges and corners are pushed togeth so no filling escapes.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until they start to turn SLIGHTLY golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool.
  10. Eat and enjoy!

    I’ve never heard of Hamantaschen before! They look extremely yummy, I totally see why they are popular in the States (and I don’t understand why they are not in Europe!)
