HONEY DOUGH FOR HAMANTASCHEN
Makes 30 to 36
Ingredients:
  • 4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 eggs (graded large)
  • ½ cup very soft solid white vegetable shortening or melted vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup honey, warmed
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
Directions:
Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Beat the eggs with the vegetable shortening. Beat in the honey and lemon juice. Stir in half of the sifted dry ingredients. Add the remaining dry ingredients to the mixture, mixing well until a dough is formed. It may be necessary to use your hands to get a smooth working dough. Divide the dough in half.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of the dough to ¹\8-inch thickness. Cut into 3-inch rounds. Drop a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center of each circle. Fold up the edges of each round to form an equilateral triangle; pinch the seams together to seal. You may leave a slight opening in the center to expose the filling. Transfer the triangles to lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

 

BON APPÉTIT

בתיאבון
