Hamantashen Recipe


Ingrediants:
3 Eggs
½ Cup Shortening or margerine (not oil)
1 Cup Sugar
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Cup Orange Juice
3 Cups Flour

Filling of your choice: chocolate chips, poppy seed, strawberry jem...etc.

Blend eggs, shortening, sugar, baking powder, and orange juice together in a large bowl.  Gradually add flour while using hands to work the dough until a soft ball forms and the dough comes away from the side of the bowl.  Add flour as needed.  While working with the dough, keep hands floured.

Roll out small pieces of the dough on a floured board.  Take an average-size class to use as cookie cutter and cut out circles.  The uncut dough can be used for another batch of circles.

Place a small amount of filling into the middle of each circle and fold into triangle.  Be sure to pinch triangle edges together so that they stay closed.

WARNING: Too much filling with cause the hamantashen to “explode.”      

Place hamantashen on a cookie sheet and cook at 350 until golden brown.
