My husband has requested poppy see hamantachen as evidently that is the ONLY one they eat in the Holy Land! He thought I was nuts when he requested them and I said "Do you want apricot or chocolate!" So if you have a good poppy seed hamantachen recipe let me know!

I have one but it was in hebrew and my husband translated it for me - I hesitate to use it as little things like TB and tsp seem to never translate properly

Oh, I guess I should have asked what kind of dough you are looking for? The filling I ususally just pick up ready made or use my home made jem/jelly.

I make a very simple dough:

Hamentashen.

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup shortening
3 eggs
½ cup orange juice
4 cups flower
3 tsps. Baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 pounds filling

Cream sugar, oil and shortening. Add eggs and juice and mix well. Blend with dry ingredients and roll into a ball. Divide into four parts. Roll out each piece very thin, about 1/8 of an inch (about 3 mm) on a floured board. Cut out circles with a cup or a cutter. Place ½ to 2/3 of a teaspoon of filling in the middle of each circle. Fold to form a triangle.

Bake at 30 deg for about 20 minutes, depends on your oven. You can brush the egg wash on the top if you like, I don’t.
Shortening could be substituted with margarine. I have not used butter as I usually need them to be parve, cannot tell you how it would work out.

My mother makes yeast Hamentashen. I have never done it and she doesn’t really have a recipe written down. Unfortunately she is not up for Hamentashen making this year. So I cannot ask for her recipe. G-d willing when she feels better…

Hamentashen, named because they look like little pirate's hats, they are my eldest daughter's favorite cookie. I'll have to look up my recipes when I get home.

You bring back good memories to me.

Actually they are named that way because they look ear of Haman, an evil man who end up on the gallows.
