Easy Hamantaschen A favorite treat for the Purim holiday! It has always worked better for me if I cover the dough and refrigerate overnight.

prep: 15 mins cook: 12 mins total: 27 mins Servings: 24 Yield: 24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 5 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup fruit preserves, any flavor

Directions

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

    Step 2

    In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until lightly and fluffy. Stir in the oil, vanilla and orange juice. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the batter to form a stiff dough. If dough is not stiff enough to roll out, stir in more flour. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into circles using a cookie cutter or the rim or a drinking glass. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of preserves into the center of each one. Pinch the edges to form three corners.

    Step 3

    Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
