Recipe #18 - Hamantaschen - Happy Purim!

Yummy! Made these for religious school - definitely worth doing again!

3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup safflower oil (i used half butter half oil)
1 lemon, zested
1 orange, zested
4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Filling of your choice - I did dark chocolate pieces with raspberry jam, well, because I could!


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk eggs, 1 cup sugar, oil, lemon zest, and orange zest together in a bowl and set aside. Sift flour and baking powder together in a large bowl. Stir in the egg mixture, kneading with hands until the dough comes together. Roll out dough to about 1/4 inch in thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut circles out using a cookie cutter or the rim of a drinking glass.
  3. Place a tablespoon of the filling in the center of the cookie. Pinch the edges firmly together to create a triangle, leaving the center open to expose the filling. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15-17 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Yup, I'll do these again next year!
