Cookies and Cream Hamantaschen

10 Days of Hamantaschen Day 5 — These Cookies and Cream Hamantaschen are ready for their close-up!

Cookies + Cream = one happy Micah. Some things are just better in pairs, and cookies and cream are meant to be together. Fold them in, bundle them up, and leave space for a glass of milk at the end. Thank me later.

I like to think of Cookies & Cream as a flavor from my childhood, but I never really outgrew it either. Does anyone else feel the same way, or is it just me? I mean, oreo cookie dough and vanilla are two of the best things that can happen to a person. When you combine them, it's like the world has opened up and decided to make your dreams come true.

If you love cookies and cream as much as I do, this Cookies and Cream Hamantaschen recipe is for you. A more fun and modern take on the Purim hamantaschen recipes that a lot of us grew up with.
