Cookie Dough Hamantashen (parve)

Total Time
Prep 45 mins

This recipe came from my synagogue's Women's League cookbook. After I made this recipe I knew I had a winner when my children begged for them at every meal.


  1. Beat eggs well.
  2. Add oil and sugar, beating well.
  3. Beat in vanilla, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Gradually add flour.
  5. Chill dough. May be chilled overnight but let it sit out a while so it is not so cold - The dough will be easier to work with (I didn't include chill time in the preparation time).
  6. Roll dough onto floured board.
  7. Cut into 3 inch rounds.
  8. Place a heaping teaspoonful of filling.
  9. I used Solo poppyseed filling, Solo apricot filling, seedless raspberry preserves, and chocolate chips - They were all yummy.
  10. Take a little water and wet the outside area of the circle.
  11. Draw up sides to form a triangle and pinch closed.
  12. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets.
  13. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes or until brown.

I used orange infused olive oil for a very subtle orange flavor. I also reduced the sugar to 1 cup.

Great recipe! Glad I tried it even though it wasn't well-reviewed. I used 1 cup of sugar instead of 1.25 cups and found it was still very sweet. The texture was exactly perfect. Thank you, I will be making my second batch this morning!

Very easy dough to work and pinched together better than other recipes I've tried. I used 375 oven, and that helped them from running for me. I do have to say, for flavor, I like hamantashen that use butter, rather than oil.
