We’re all for holidays that have their own cookie! Purim cookies, also known as Hamantaschen – meaning Haman hats, pockets, or ears depending on who you ask, are the cookie dejour for this Hebrew holiday!
This recipe reads a bit like a Great British Baking Show technical challenge – we’re assuming you know the basics of how to make cookies in general and what Purim cookies look like. But the ingredients are super simple and you likely already have them in your pantry!
- 1 yellow cake mix box
- 1 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbsp water
- 1/2 cup filling of your choice - nutella, jams, jellies, peanut butter all work
Pre-heat Oven to 375 degrees
Ignore direction and other ingredients on cake mix box
Mix the cake mix and flour together
Combine all ingredients and mix well
Should form a very stiff dough
Roll dough out 1/8" thick
Cut with 3" round cookie cutter
Place 1 tsp of filling in middle of circle
Pinch closed forming 3 corners
Bake for 6 minutes or until golden brown
If you want them to last - fewer filling options is better, otherwise everyone wants to try one of each.
