My favorite thing about Holidays is all the wonderful FOOD! Hamantashen anyone? Yesterday, our preschool children made some of their own.
Here's the recipe.
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup softened margarine (2 sticks)
- 1/2 cup corn oil *3 ½ cups flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Use your favorite ingredient: Prune butter, poppy seed pie filling, apricot jam, strawberry jam, chocolate chips, nutella, peanut butter cups, etc. Be Creative!!
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, oil and margarine. Mix until everything is blended- Best mixed with your hands.
Refrigerate dough for at least ½ hour.
Flatten out the dough using a rolling pin or your hand. Cut a round piece using the bottom of a cup. Fill the center of the circle with a teaspoon of filling. Draw the 3 sides together to form a triangle and PINCH the edges.
Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Eat and enjoy!!!! Shalom Stacey
