Raspberry Walnut Coconut Filling Recipe


This simple Raspberry Walnut Coconut Filling is easily made with only three common ingredients and is delicious in Hamantashen, those traditional Purim cookies which are shaped like the wicked Haman’s ears (or hat), as well as thumbprint cookies and pinwheel cookies. It may also be used as a filling in Danish pastries, miniature turnovers, and miniature tarts.

One of the advantages to using this filling is that it is so quick to stir together. Although I prefer to toast the walnuts to bring out their flavor, it isn’t absolutely necessary, and if you’re in a hurry, you may skip that step; the filling will still taste good. Store-bought raspberry jam works well in this filling, but if you happen to have some homemade raspberry jam in the freezer (the uncooked kind), the filling will be even better.

For a change, substitute high-quality semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate for either the coconut or the walnuts. Or, if you want, you may cut the walnuts down to 1 cup and the coconut to 3/4 cup and add 3/4 cup of chocolate chips or chopped chocolate. You may also substitute various flavors of jam such as blackberry, strawberry, apricot, or peach.

Raspberry Walnut Coconut Filling


About 4 cups filling, enough to fill 6 dozen Hamantashen or 12 dozen thumbprint cookies

1 1/2 cups walnut(s)
1 1/2 cups raspberry jam
1 cup flaked coconut
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.

  2. Place the walnuts on a baking sheet

  3. Bake the walnuts for 8-10 minutes, or until they begin to smell good, and they are beginning to turn brown.

  4. Remove the walnuts from the oven and let cool.

  5. Finely chop the walnuts.

  6. Transfer them to a bowl.

  7. Mix the walnuts with the raspberry jam and coconut.
