Hamantaschen

March 8, 2012

Its Purim!

My favourite part of Purim is eating hamantaschen with mon (poppy seeds) but since not everyone likes poppy seeds I decided to try my hand at making a Nutella hamantaschen.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup butter or margerine
  • Your choice of filling (you can use a poppy seed mixture, chocolate spread, jam or nuts)

 

Method

  • Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  • Mix in eggs and butter (I melted the butter slightly in the microwave).
  • Mix until a dough forms.
  • Roll out the dough and cut out large rounds.
  • Transfer the rounds to a greased baking tray and place a teaspoon of your filling in the middle.
  • Fold  your circle on three ‘sides’ and pinch together to create a triangular parcel, leaving the  middle open so you can see the filling.
  • Bake for 15 – 20min or until golden brown in a 180°C oven.

 

Enjoy!
