“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!”
60 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla together. Add flour.
  2. Form into 3" logs, wrap and freeze.
  3. Before making, remove from freezer and let thaw slightly. Slice in 1/4" slices.
  4. Put some filling in the center of each slice.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Bake at 350°F until done, about 20 minutes.
