  • 1/2 lb. butter

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

  3. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Roll dough to 1/4″ thickness and Cut into 3 to 4 inch round circles and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  5. Place a teaspoon of filling into the center of each cookie and pinch the sides to form three corners.
  6. Moisten with water if necessary.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned.

This is a schnecken recipe in disguise but it works very well for making hamentashen.
