I love the idea of banana in the fough - yes, please post! To me, the key to great hamataschen is the ratio of poppy seed filling to dough. I've been playing with it for a long time, and find that smaller cookies work better. My recipe is here: http://cozydelicious.com/2010/02/28/baking-hamantaschen-for-purim/

The NYT had an article about this recipe, and Deb from SmittenKitchen praised the results.
