4 Ingredients Peanut butter Hamantaschen {Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free}

Call me crazy for taking the classic Peanut Butter Cookies and making them “purim style”  in hamantaschen shape. This was the genius idea of my son and niece who wanted to make peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips, but changed the shape of the cookies mid-way through the process, and although I was skeptical, it worked. 

If you are looking for an easy recipe to have some baking fun with the little ones, these 4 ingredients Peanut Butter Hamantaschen with chocolate filling might be what you are looking for. 

Turning a classic into Peanut Butter Hamantaschen

To make these Peanut Butter Hamantaschen you’ll need 4 simple ingredients, you probably have at home right now:  peanut butter, eggs, sugar and chocolate chips, ganache or nutella (or your filling of preference). 

The process couldn’t be easier, just mix the ingredients in bowl (except for the chocolate chips), as you would when making the classic peanut butter cookies, and and mix with a fork or hand mixer until it has the consistency of a thick batter.

After this what is left is portioning the cookies, shaping and baking. I find that smaller cookies are easier to handle, so I weigh portions of 25-30 grams each. Flatten each one in your hands, pinch with a fork, place the filling in the center and shape. Transfer to a baking sheet for baking, and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for about 12 minutes.
