Yield: about 2 dozen

Time: Prep – 20 minutes, Cook – 12-18 minutes


5 1/2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 tsp vanilla

1/2  tsp salt

1 cup oil

4 eggs

filling of your choice (jellly, chocolate chips, etc…)

  • Mix all ingredients until a soft dough forms.
  • Roll out dough.
  • Cut into round circles using a round cookie cutter or a glass cup.
  • Add filling and pinch 3 corners together into a triangular shape.
  • Place on lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 until light brown, about 12-18 minutes.

Tips: To start off, making hamentaschen is not for the faint hearted as I have discovered after, that its not my thing. I made the dough as instructed yet it was to dry and I had to add a little water to get the right consistency, plus the dough was quite oily. Once you roll out the dough and cut the round shapes you need to spoon the filling into the middle of each piece but make sure not to much so it doesn’t bubble out once baked. The filling I used was a walnut, honey, & raisin mixture but I think it was a little dry. My mother made hamentaschen after and used my filling mixture but added jelly to it to make it creamier. Make sure to pinch the corners tightly so they stay shut. If you attempt to make hamentaschen, have fun!
