Its snowing here and it is 1 week b4 Purim - So of course I told my kids we will bake hamentashen today! This was very interesting! It was nice not to have to measure many ingredients or refrigerate the cookie dough before working with it! I made the recipe as stated - and did not need to add extra water as others have stated. I used a bit of extra flour to dust the top and bottom of the dough b4 rolling it out and rolled it between pieces of parchment paper. I brushed the circles with egg wash and then filled some with chocolate chips and some with strawberry jam. The egg wash helped to keep the corners closed. I also brushed the tops with egg wash. I baked for longer than stated - 6-8 minutes was too short. The cookies came out soft - but very good. If you are looking for an easy and quick hamentashen recipe - this is it! I used some of the extra scraps to make regular sugar cookie circles with sprinkles.
