We know a very sweet Jewish grandma who loved to serve up Hamantashen to her grandchildren for Purim, except, here’s the thing: the kids liked to call them “Triangle Hat Cookies” because that’s what they look like! Whatever you call them, make sure you bake up a batch of these filled cookie treats!
What You’ll Need:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup prune, apricot, or poppy seed filling
What To Do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
2. In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add eggs and beat well. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; mix well.
3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, flattening each with the palms of your hands into round 1/4-inch-thick disks. Place 1 teaspoon of filling into center of each disk; pinch the edges up in 3 places to form a triangle. Place on prepared baking sheets.
4. Bake 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
