Hamantashen Recipe:

Slightly adapted from ‘A Treasure for My Daughter’

 

Ingredients (Dough):

  • 2 eggs (plus 1 egg for glaze)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup oil (grapeseed or light olive)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Juice and rind of ½ navel orange
  • 2 ½ to 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

 

Fillings: Use whatever you’d like, but here are a few recommendations:

  • Seedless raspberry jam
  • Peanut butter and chocolate chips (peanut butter cups)
  • Nutella
  • Apricot jam

 

Method:

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Whisk together wet ingredients well
  3. Add dry ingredients by sifting flour, baking powder, and salt together
  4. Knead lightly to form a ball of dough. Do not over knead the dough
  5. Roll into a rectangle with ¼ inch thickness
  6. Cut in 3 inch rounds with a cookie cutter or a glass (you should get about 24 rounds)
  7. Place small spoonful of filling in centre of each round
  8. Fold up bottom 1/3 of the way to cover most of filling and fold up two sides into the centre to form a triangle. Squeeze the corners to create a seal, leaving just a small opening in the centre
  9. Place on parchment covered cookie sheet
  10. Whisk remaining egg well, and brush on each triangle. Remove any excess egg with a paper towel
  11. Bake in center rack of oven for 20 – 25 minutes (check after 20 minutes)
  12. Remove and place on a cooling rack to cool
