Fluffernutter Hamantaschen
Serves: about 40
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2⅓ cups flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together the oil and peanut butter until smooth.
  3. Add the corn syrup, sugar and brown sugar and beat until smooth. Mix in the baking powder, vanilla and eggs. Turn the mixer to low and add the flour. Beat until the flour is incorporated.
To make the filling:
  1. Combine the peanut butter and marshmallow fluff until smooth. I found this easiest to do using the whisk of an electric mixer. Set aside.
  2. Roll out the dough on a floured-surface to about ⅛th inch thickness.
  3. Cut out circles of the dough and place about a half a teaspoon of the filling in the center of each one. Fold the corners together to form the hamantaschen shape. Use this guide for tips. (Dough will be delicate, so handle with care.)
  4. Place hamantashen on tray and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Hamantaschen will be soft when they come out of the oven, but will firm up as they cool, so don't be tempted to overbake them.
