Easy Hamantaschen Recipe

Preparation Tips:
Keep the dough on the thinner side and do not overfill.
Make sure the edges are tightly pinched.
Don’t add too much flour to the dough, it will get drier and hard to seal shut.

Easy Filling: use an already prepared apricot, prune, chocolate, peanut butter or any other filing that you like.

Dough Ingredients
½ cup sugar
¼ cup oil
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2-2½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder

Dough Directions
Mix the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla.
Add 1 cup of flour and the baking powder. Mix.
Add the remaining flour until the dough forms a soft, but not sticky ball.
Roll out the dough and cut out circles.
Put a teaspoon of filling in the center of each circle.
Gently fold the sides and pinch shut tightly.

Bake for 10-12 minutes on 350°F.

Yields: 20 Hamantaschen
