Not up to rolling out a dough and baking hamantaschen? Get in the Purim spirit with these four easy and tasty ways to enjoy the three-cornered pastry.

 

Hamantashen are meant to be symbolic; no one said they need to involve a from-scratch cookie dough, a rolling pin, and a mess in the kitchen.

 

Here are 4 fun super easy fun ways to enjoy Hamantashen without the work.

 

All 4 recipes start with pizza rounds. Remove the rounds from the package. Lay them flat, cover and let defrost/rise for 30 minutes. You must make sure you cover them or they will dry out. When filling, flip over so that the sticky side faces you so that they can be closed easily. Use wet fingers to pinch the ends closed so that they stay in the hamentashen shape.

Serve them for your Purim seudah, for dinner the week of Purim to get into the spirit, or during the day as a snack.
