36 s

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup pareve margarine
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2-3 cups sifted unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Directions

Preparation

1 Cream the shortening with sugar. Add egg and continue creaming until smooth.
2 Add the vanilla. Stir in the sifted flour, baking powder, and salt until a ball of dough is formed (a food processor is excellent for this).
3 Chill dough for 2-3 hours, or overnight.
4 Prepare filling using chopped dates, walnuts, sugar and optional rose water.
5 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
6 Using 1/4 of the dough (keep rest in refrigerator), roll out on a lightly floured board to a thickness of 1/8 inch.
7 Cut circles of dough with a drinking glass or round cookie-cutter.
8 With your finger put water around the rim of the circle. Fill with 1 teaspoon filling and fold into three-cornered cookies.
9 Bake on a well-greased cookie sheet 10-16 minutes, until the tops are golden.
10 Repeat, using rest of dough and filling.

This recipe came from my grandmother.  The filling is delicious.  Alternate fillings can also be used but this is my favourite.
