Today we celebrate a Jewish holiday Purim

Let us share our magic with you today by celebrating Purim together with the recipe of Hamantaschen!

 

Story:  Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day,” as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther). The most famous Purim food is hamantaschen, Yiddish for “Haman’s pockets”, also known in Hebrew as oznay Haman meaning “Haman’s ears.”

 

Recipe

Ingredients:

Dash of salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

 2 1/2 - 3 cups all-purpose flour

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup sugar

 poppy seed or nut butter, for filling

2/3 cup pareve margarine or butter


Method:

Cream the shortening with sugar. Add egg and continue creaming until smooth.

Add the vanilla. Stir in the sifted flour, baking powder, and salt until a ball of dough is formed (a food processor is excellent for this).

Chill for 2-3 hours, or overnight.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Taking 1/4 of the dough, roll out on a lightly floured board to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Cut circles of dough with a drinking glass or round cookie-cutter. With your finger put water around the rim of the circle. Fill with 1 teaspoon poppy-seed or nut filling and fold into three-cornered cookies. (Press two sides together, and then fold the third side over and press the ends together.)

Bake on a well-greased cookie sheet 10-16 minutes, until the tops are golden.
