That's right, they're Haman's ears!

Hamantash is also known as hamentasch, homentash, homentasch, or even (h)umentash. The name "hamantash" (Yiddish: המן־טאַש), is commonly known as a reference to Haman, the villain of Purim, as described in the Book of Esther. The pastries are supposed to symbolize the defeated enemy of the Jewish people, and thus resemble the "ears of Haman".[3]
