Hamentashens Recipe for Purim

With Purim currently taking place, I though it could be a most fantastic idea to write up the best possible recipe for how to bake Hamentashens cookies. It's a recipe I've enjoyed ever since my grandmother began using it years ago, and it still holds up very well today, eternally surpassing the ingredients used in commercial Hamentashens. Oh yes, it's delicious.

So now, here is the marvelous recipe for Hamentashens, at your service, everybody!

3 and 1/4 cups flour
3 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Beat eggs with oil. Add sugar. Add sifted dry ingredients. Add flour. Roll to 1/8 thick cut with 3-inch drinking glass.


1 lb prunes
3 slices of orange
1 raisins
Rind juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 and 1/4 cup of water

Cook until soft and then use blender.

And then, you'll be able to put together some really good Hamentashens for Purim, or any other time for that matter! It's one of the best recipes my grandmother came up with years ago, and is far better than any storebought product of this kind.

Happy Purim, everybody!
