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

- In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the oil, eggs, egg yolk, sugar, zest, both juices and brandy until smooth. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until a sticky dough is formed. Wrap in plastic wrap, flatten into a disk and chill overnight.
- When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Working with about one quarter of the dough at a time and leaving the remaining in the refrigerator, roll on lightly floured surface a little less than 1/4-inch thick. Cut circles (or other fun shapes) using cookie cutters 2 1/2 to 3 inches. Place a spoonful of filling in center (about 1 teaspoon per cookie) and then pinch one side up. Turn and pinch second and then third to make a triangular shape. Leave a little bit of the filling showing at the top. For non-traditional shapes, use your imagination: tubular, squares, bite-size or even some flat cookies depressed in the center with a bit of filling there.
- Place cookies on parchment paper on cookie sheet, brush with a little beaten egg for sheen and bake until nicely browned, 10 to 15 minutes.
- Keep room temp in airtight container but consume within 3 to 4 days, tops.
- Combine everything except the lemon zest and juice and the beaten egg into a saucepan and cook over moderate heat until thick, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir often. Add zest and juice. Take a bit of the filling and mix it into the beaten egg. Repeat, then mix the egg mixture into the pot of filling. Cool overnight.
When chef Michael Solomonov and his business partner Steve Cook develop recipes for their Philadelphia restaurants (including Zahav, Abe Fisher and K'Far), they often start by talking about their mothers. "Someone will say, 'Oh wait, my mom makes it like this. Let me get her recipe,' " Michael says. Steve's mom, Susan, provided the dough recipe for these hamantaschen - traditional triangular jam-filled cookies that show up on their menus for the Jewish holiday of Purim. It's a pretty classic recipe, with a few exceptions: Susan adds brown sugar and maple extract to her version. The resulting cookie is extra chewy, and perfectly sweet. -Francesca Cocchi for Food Network Magazine

- Make the dough: Beat the butter, both sugars, the egg, milk, vanilla and maple extract (if using) with a mixer on medium-high speed. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and beat until fully incorporated.
- Divide the dough into thirds and wrap each portion tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Form the hamantaschen: Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 375˚ F. Roll out one piece of dough on a floured surface until 1/8 inch thick. Use the rim of a juice glass to cut out 3-inch circles. Repeat with the remaining dough.
- Spoon a teaspoon of the apricot preserves into the center of each circle of dough.
- Fold in the edges of the dough to form a triangle, pinching at the corners to keep the filling in but leaving the center filling slightly exposed.
- Bake the hamantaschen: Arrange the hamantaschen on 2 baking sheets (use nonstick pans or line the pans with parchment paper).
- Bake, rotating and switching the pans halfway through, until the hamantaschen are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Let cool a few minutes on the baking sheets, then remove to a wire rack and let cool completely.

HAMANTASCHEN (BEST EVER!)
A friend gave me this recipe for hamentaschen, the traditional pastry of the Jewish holiday of Purim. The filling is more likely to please an adult than a child. To use up all the filling takes somewhere between one and two batches of dough. These freeze well. I'm totally guessing on the time it takes to make them. They aren't quick, but worth the effort!

- For the filling, simply chop all the ingredients fine in your food processor and mix well.
- For the dough, cream sugar and eggs.
- Add oil and mix until it turns pale yellow and is no longer shiny.
- Mix in lemon and vanilla.
- In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
- Slowly add dry ingredients to wet. When it becomes difficult to mix, add more flour and knead.
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- To assemble cookies, roll out dough (in batches) to desired thickness (maybe a little thinner than 1/4") and cut into circles of desired size (can use cookie cutter, inverted glass, etc). Put a dollop of filling in the center of each cookie and fold up into a triangular shape, pinching the corners and leaving the center open so that the filling peeks out.
- Bake cookies for about 15 minutes until they are beginning to brown. I've always greased the cookie sheet very lightly with non-stick spray, but I don't know that you need to.
WORKING MOM'S HAMENTASHEN
This is a great recipe to use when you're short on time but don't want to deprive your family of that famous Jewish fruit-filled cookie around Purim time. Versions of this recipe have circulated around the Colorado Springs Jewish community for years. At a Purim carnival one year, I asked for someone's copy of the recipe.

HAMENTASHEN WITH YEAST DOUGH
Posted in response to a recipe request. Hamentashen are the filled triangular pastries eaten on the Jewish holiday of Purim. Traditional fillings are either prune or poppy seed. In the last 15 years or so I've been having a lot of fun coming up with other fillings, like peanut butter and chocolate, and apple cinnamon. Prep time includes the time the dough takes to rise.

Hamantaschen cookies are popular treats for the feast of Purim, which joyfully celebrates the Jews' deliverance from the detested Haman. Make sure the cookie dough is well chilled before you roll it out so it won't stick to your rolling pin or counter and tear.

- In the bowl of a heavy-duty mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar on medium speed until light in color and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add orange zest, orange juice, vanilla extract, and 2 eggs, one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl when necessary
- Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add to butter mixture until just combined. Divide dough into thirds. Wrap tightly in plastic, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Remove one-third of the dough from the refrigerator at a time. On a liberally floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-inch thickness. With a 3-inch fluted round cutter, cut out as many circles as possible, and place on a prepared baking pan. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile make the poppy-seed filling: Grind poppy seeds in a food processor. Place seeds in a medium saucepan. Add milk and honey. Cook over a medium-low heat until thickened, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Add raisins and lemon zest. Remove from heat. Cool completely before using.
- Remove chilled circles from refrigerator. Place each filling into a medium pastry bag fitted with a coupler. Pipe 2 teaspoons of filling into the center of each circle. Whisk together remaining egg with 1 teaspoon of water. Brush edges with egg wash. Fold in sides to form a triangle. Pinch dough to enclose the filling.
- Bake the cookies in the center rack of the oven until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes; then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
These are the easiest hamantashen I've ever made! They are a bit sweet, roll out easily and are consumed quickly! My kids don't want to give them to their friends! Traditional fillings are prune and poppy seed. You can use any canned pie filling, whole fruit jelly, chocolate chips, or any type filling your family likes! Be creative with these- we put mini chocolate chips in the dough!

- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the orange juice and vanilla. Mix in the baking powder, then gradually stir in the flour until the dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. I like to do mine overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch circles using a cookie cutter or drinking glass. Place circles on the prepared cookie sheets. Spoon 1 teaspoon of filling onto the center of each circle. (Any more and it will ooze out) Pinch the sides of each circle to form a triangle, covering as much of the filling as possible. The cookies may be frozen on the cookie sheets if desired to help retain their shape while cooking.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light golden brown. These are best undercooked slightly. Cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

HAMANTASCHEN DOUGH (AKA HAMANTASHEN / OZNEI HAMAN)

- Beat eggs and sugar until creamy.
- Add oil and beat. Add juice and extracts. Add baking powder. Gradually add flour until it becomes a good dough consistency.
- Fill with favorite filling and shape.
- Bake at 350°F on lined baking sheet for about 10 minutes (until bottom is golden).
- Let butter and cream soften at room temperature. Cream them together until thoroughly blended; beat in sour cream.
- Stir in salt, sugar and the egg.
- Gradually beat in flour, adding just enough to make a dough that will stick together. Form a ball, wrap in waxed paper and chill overnight.
- Before rolling out dough, prepare filling by blending prune jam with remaining ingredients. Set aside.
- Divide dough in half; place one half in the refrigerator while you roll the first. Place a sheet of waxed paper on the counter top or pastry board and place the first half of the dough on it. Top with a second sheet of waxed paper. Using a rolling pin, roll dough between sheets of waxed paper, turning the dough over with the paper so it is rolled on both sides and lifting the sheets of paper between every two or three rollings. Dough should be about 1/8-inch thick.
- Roll the second half of the dough in the same way.
- Using a 3 1/2- to 4-inch round cookie cutter, cut circles from the rolled out dough. Place a well-rounded teaspoon of prune filling in the center of each circle.
- Moisten the edges of each circle with a little cold water and shape triangles; be sure to pinch the three corner seams tightly closed.
- Arrange hamantaschen on cookie sheets and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour before baking.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake hamantaschen for about 15 minutes or until bottoms and tops are golden brown.

Top Asked Questions
How do you make hamantaschen?Place about 1 teaspoon of the poppy seed filling into the center of each circle of dough. Brush the edges of the circles with a bit of water. Roll up 3 edges of the circle to form a triangular shape and pinch the edges together to seal the cookies. Use the dough scraps to roll, fill and shape more hamantaschen.
What is hamentashen dough and how is it made?Most hamentashen dough is made with butter. While buttery dough is delicious, it can be hard to shape and handle. This dough uses oil instead of butter. It is every bit as delicious as the buttery kind, but in my opinion, much easier to deal with. Using oil instead of butter also makes this recipe parve if that is important to you.
How to make Purim pareve hamentashen?This classic pareve Hamentashen dough is an essential recipe for your Purim holiday repertoire. 1. Preheat oven to 350° F. 2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together shortening and sugar. 3. Add eggs and vanilla and continue mixing. 4. Add baking powder, salt and about 1½ cups of flour.
Can you freeze hamantaschen dough?You can cut the dough into larger circles, if you prefer more bites per cookie! Freeze the uncooked hamantaschen on cookie sheets before baking — this helps them to retain their shape and stops the filling from spilling over while in the oven. Fill these triangular cookies with whatever filling you enjoy the most.
