This recipe is originally from the "Jewish Holiday Do-book", though I found it on a Jewish recipe site. This is how I make Hamantaschen with my kids! So easy!

Made this recipe as given & with 3 different fillings ~ One was with just some semisweet chocolate, another with orange marmalade & chocolate together, & the last 1/3 with raspberry jam! All equally tasty, I thought! Then I set aside 6 of each to keep here & enjoy, while letting my other half take them to a weekly meeting he attends! Another time I might just do some with a date or raisin filling as well! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in healthy Choices ABC tag]
- 1 cup butter, softened (or butter-flavored margarine)
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 4 cups flour
- jam (or other fillings) or chocolate chips (or other fillings)
Directions See How It's Made
- Beat butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla together. Add flour.
- Form into 3" logs, wrap and freeze.
- Before making, remove from freezer and let thaw slightly. Slice in 1/4" slices.
- Put some filling in the center of each slice.
- Fold each "cicle" into a triangular shape, pinching the edges closed. Note that the dough needs to have defrosted all the way to fold it.
- I put the cookies on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. That way, you can use a sharpie to write whose cookie is whose on the paper.
- Bake at 350°F until done, about 20 minutes.
