This is from "Daks" at

Part of my family is Jewish. They make Hamantaschen (Haman pockets) at this time of year:

Hamantaschen II Source: The Women's Orthodox League (Detroit) Cookbook
Yield: depends on thickness of dough and size of cookie; usually several dozen
3-1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
Your favorite filling

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.

Combine oil, water and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.

Add flour mixture. Mix well and refrigerate overnight.

Roll out, using more flour if necessary to prevent sticking. Use 3" cup to cut out rounds. Put 1 tbsp. of your favorite filling in the middle and fold up, making three corners.

Bake at 350įF for 25 minutes or until golden brown. This recipe is good for kids, because all their playing will not ruin the dough. Add flour whenever necessary.

Poster's Notes:
The filling I use is the jar of prune butter (lekvar). I dilute it with lemon juice and add lots of chopped nuts. This is great for teachers to use with kids. No amount of the kids playing with the dough can ruin it. I gave it to a friend who used it for her nursery class and the hamantaschen came out delicious. I won't even experiment with another one.

The Purim story begins about 900 years after the Exodus from Egypt. The Jews had been living in Israel continually, since they first entered with Joshua. For 410 years, King Solomonís Temple in Jerusalem had been the focal point of Jewish spiritual and national life in Israel. The first major tragedy that the Jews of this era experienced was the division of the country into the northern kingdom of Israel and the southern kingdom of Judea. The northern kingdom was populated by ten of the twelve tribes. It was eventually invaded by the Assyrians under Sennacherib, who exiled the Jews. Sennacheribís policy of forced exile and assimilation directly caused the loss of the ten tribes to the Jewish people.
