Hamantaschen Cookies

Hamantaschen are sweet triangular pastries with a filling poppy seeds.

My Italian tradition is around Christmas time and my mother use to made these a couple weeks before Christmas and I use to help her and I would learn, specially the raisins and Figs but no rum and I didn't have any figs..lol...

♡I doubled on the pastry ♡
☆made two kinds of filling ☆
