Cookie Dough Hamantaschen

These classic Purim treats are fun and easy to make!


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 12 min
  • Ready Time : 32 min



  • 1 stick :plus 3 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup :sugar
  • 1 large:egg
  • 3 tablespoons :orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon :vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon :salt
  • About 2 3/4 cups :all-purpose flour
  • Assorted jams:or fruit butters, or quick homemade filling (see note)



  1. To make the dough:
  2. Beat the butter or margarine until smooth, about 1 minute. Gradually add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  3. Beat in the egg.
  4. Blend in the juice, vanilla and salt.
  5. Stir in enough of the flour to make a soft dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill until firm, at least 1 hour.
  6. ————-
  7. To fill and make the hamantaschen:
  8. Preheat the oven to 375 F
  9. Remove the dough from the fridge. If it feels too hard to roll out, let it stand at room temperature until maleable but not too soft.
  10. Flour a clean work surface. Divide the dough into two pieces and roll the dough to about 1/4 inch thick.
  11. Cut rounds of dough with the edge of a drinking glass or circle cookie cutter, dipped in flour. Repeat rolling and rounding with remaining scraps of dough.
  12. Place a dollop of jam on each round. Pick up the sides and pinch them together to form a triangle, leaving the jelly center exposed.
  13. Line a few baking trays with parchment paper.
  14. Place the hamantaschen about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes.


To make a quick homemade filling, mix eight ounces of date spread with 1/2 cup of coarsely chopped nuts and zest of one lemon.
