READY IN: 4hrs 15mins




  • Cream the butter and sugar together in the large bowl.
  • Add the egg yolks and continue to mix well.
  • Add the ice water.
  • Gradually stir in flour until a ball of dough is formed.
  • Place the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for several hours or overnight.
  • When ready to continue, take dough out of refrigerator.
  • Turn on the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease the cookie sheet with the butter.
  • Divide the dough in half.
  • Wrap the extra half in the plastic and put back in the refrigerator.
  • Roll out the dough on a clean, lightly floured surface to a 1/4" thickness.
  • Cut it into 2" circles (use the top of a glass to"press out" the circles).
  • Place 1 teaspoon of the jam in the center of each circle and fold into three-cornered cookies.
  • Start by pressing two sides together, then fold the third side over and press the ends together.
  • Place the Hamantaschen about an inch apart on the greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned along the edges.
  • You don't have to limit yourself to jam, I have used chocolate, peanute butter, a combo of peanut butter and chocolate, date spread, etc.
