Almog Meir Jan’s chocolate chip Haman’s ears (hamantaschen)

Ingredients for about 20 Haman’s ears

100 grams of butter (at room temperature)
85 grams of Demerara brown sugar
50 grams of white sugar
¼ teaspoon of salt
1 egg (at room temperature)
225 grams of white flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
A pinch of baking soda powder
100 grams of finely chopped chocolate (1/2 cup)
About 3/4 cup Nutella (or any other chocolate spread)


Put the Nutella in the refrigerator so that it cools down and becomes suitable for the filling.

Put the sugars, salt and butter in a mixer bowl. Cream with a flat beater hook at medium-high speed for about 3 minutes until a light and fluffy mixture is obtained. Add the egg and mix until combined.

Mix the flour with the baking powder and the baking soda powder in a bowl. Add the flour mixture to the mixer bowl and mix on low speed until combined. Add the chopped chocolate and mix with a wooden spoon or a whisk.

Divide the dough into 2 and roll each part between 2 baking papers to a thickness of 4-5 mm. Transfer the rolled dough to the refrigerator for half an hour to set.

Cut out circles with a diameter of 7 cm, drop Nutella in the center of each circle and tighten the sides into a triangle shape.

Roll out the rest of the dough again and repeat the operation. Transfer the Haman’s ears to the freezer for at least half an hour (you can prepare in advance)

Heat the oven to 170 degrees.

Arrange the Haman’s ears on a baking sheet or silicone surface and bake for 12-13 minutes until they are slightly golden.

Remove from the oven, transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely before serving.

Almog Meir Jan (21)

Our Almog went out to have fun at the Nova party and was brutally taken to Gaza from there. At quarter to eight in the morning on October 7th he woke up his mother and said: "Mom, the army closed the party, I don't know what's going on here, there are shots in every direction, I'll call you every half an hour, I love you" and since then the contact was lost.

We put up a post on social media if anyone saw him, at around 12:00 noon a girl sent us a video that was published on Telegram of Almog with four other young men (it became clear  later that they were also from the Nova party) lying on the floor, scared and covering his face with his hands.

On October 8 on Sunday he was supposed to start his long-term job after working temporary jobs; our Almog is a child of light and joy, with a captivating smile, a child of love, loved by everyone. He is the magnet that connects everyone, with a great sense of humor, he makes everyone laugh, and is a very sensitive and kind hearted boy.

We miss him all dearly every minute of every day, his family and friends.
