Apple Strudel Hamantashen

Oktoberfest Mishoach Manot With Pretzel Bites

These apple strudel hamantashen are filled with chopped apples and lots of cinnamon and are the perfect addition to the Sound of Music mishloach manot. 

You can follow any strudel recipe and try shaping it like a hamantashen, but I used my favorite hamantashen dough recipe and this filling.
