I have updated my previous post.
These Hamantaschen bake up just like a sugar cookie which everyone seems to really like. The sprinkles colour & a nice crunch!
I always make hamantaschen with some friends & every year we try to remember how long we have been doing it.. at least 25 years we think!
Here is a link to the other Hamantaschen recipes on my blog,
Over the last few years I have been having my great nieces & nephews & some of their friends ovet for a hamantaschen bake! They love the recipe with the sprinkles so that is our ‘go to’ now! And I always make a recipe of these for my grandkids who live out of Edmonton. They mail really well. I freeze them in a ziplock bag then mail them in a box or if I am going to visit I just take them with me!
I fill these with Nutella or chocolate chips & white chocolate chips! I have not tried the cream cheese filling in the original recipe.
My recipe is inspired by KOSHER in the KITCH
***The original recipe is a bit dry so I put in about 1/4 cup less flour and then when I am rolling out the dough if it needs more flour it picks it up then…roll on a floured service and sprinkle rolling-pin with some flour, then that is enough
Here is the link to the original recipe from KOSHER in the KITCH
Here is my adapted recipe
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350f Line baking sheets with baking paper
- In the bowl of a mixer, beat the sugar and oil together.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition
- Add the vanilla
- Combine the flour & baking powder **** I added the sprinkles to the flour, mixed them in with a spoon, then added this to the batter, it mixed in better then adding them after the flour is added…
- Add the flour/baking powder/sprinkles to the wet ingredients. Mix well
- Divide the dough in half, reserve one half, roll the other one on a lightly floured surface
- Using a glass or a round cookie cutter, cut out rounds of dough.
- Put in the filling *** do not overfill or the cookies as they will open up as the fillings melt. Usually I put in about 10-12 chocolate chips & in the Nutella ones no more than a scant teaspoon
- Form the dough into a triangle shape around the filling…envision the circle divided in 3 …bring one edge of the circle together and pinch the edges, then bring the other side of the circle together, pinching edges and then the third side together to form the correct shape. Leave a bit of an opening in the middle if you like.
- Bake on a lined cookie sheet for approx 12-15 minutes. Check after 10 minutes.. The baking time really depends on the thickness of the dough.
- Cool on wire rack
