Best Hamantaschen
Yield: Makes about 4 dozen

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 medium seedless orange
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • Jam or other fillings

Cut the orange into quarters and pulverize it in your food processor until finely chopped. Add the eggs, sugar and oil, and process for about 10 seconds. Add the baking powder and flour and process with several on/off turns, just until the flour is blended into dough. It will be slightly sticky, but that's OK. Cut the dough into 3 or 4 pieces, and work with just one lump at a time.

Roll the dough out on a well-floured board to about 1/8 inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter cut 3-inch circles of dough. In the middle of each circle, put about 1/2 teaspoon of filling: jam, chocolate chips, or even canned pie filling. Pinch the sides of the circle up, making a triangular enclosure, and leaving the top slightly open so that you can see the filling. (Just make sure that the corners are firmly pinched so that the jam doesn't leak out the sides.)

Place cookies on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 F (180 C) for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Makes about 4 dozen hamantaschen.

alternate spelling: Hamantashen
