Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Hamantaschen

Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Hamantaschen

A cross between a hamantasch and a peanut butter cup, these Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Hamantaschen will be the most delicious cookie you’ve tasted!

I don’t say this lightly, but I’ve invented the most delicious hamantaschen ever.

I know, it’s a big claim to make, but let’s talk about the awesomeness of these cookies.

Nowadays, everyone is scrambling to invent the cutest, prettiest, most exciting hamantaschen ever. And the ideas keep exploding. But here’s the thing. I like pretty food. I like exciting food. Hey, I even like cute food. But for me, that’s always secondary. First, in my book, will always be taste. If it tastes great, it’s great. If it looks awesome – that’s a bonus.
