Servings 12 large

Ingredients
  

  • 4 cups all-purpose Flour I used whole wheat
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 sticks or 1/2 pound of unsalted butter cold and firm
  • 2 eggs
  • Grated rind of 2 oranges
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice

Instructions
 

  • Mix together dry ingredients in a mixer
  • Add butter and keep mixing
  • Add eggs, orange rind and orange juice.
  • Finish mixing dough and chill overnight.
  • The next day, set up the fillings you want to use.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Roll out dough -- if dough is too cakey, add some more liquid (I used a little oil).
  • Put in filling
  • Pinch sides up into a tricorner shape.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 13-15 minutes -- thicker hamentashen will take around 16 minutes.
