Hamantaschen

Yield about 2 1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Dried Fruit Filling
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

How to Make It

  1. Combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 2 eggs, honey, and lemon juice; stir well. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill thoroughly.

  2. Roll one half of dough to 1/8- inch thickness on a floured surface, keeping remaining dough chilled until ready to use. Cut with a floured 3-inch round cutter. Place 1 heaping teaspoon of Dried Fruit Filling in center of each circle; fold into a 3-cornered hat shape, pinching edges together to seal. Brush cookies with 1 beaten egg. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over cookies.

  3. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets, and cool completely on wire racks.
