Hamantaschen, Margarine-Free (P, TNT)
Source: A publication for preschoolers
Yield: Approximately 40 cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons honey

Beat oil and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add honey, continuing beating. Gradually add flour and baking powder. Mix well, using hands at the end if absolutely necessary.

Roll dough out to 1/4" thickness (don't roll too thin). Batter may be slightly oily. We sometimes roll the dough between pieces of waxed paper if it seems necessary, but usually we don't. Cut dough into 3" circles, or a near approximation. Put a generous amount of filling in the center of each circle and fold up the sides to form a triangle shape.

Bake on greased cookie sheets at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.

Poster's Notes:
We use 2 cups unbleached white and 1-1/2 cups whole wheat for the flour.

Our experience has been that this recipe should not be doubled and the dough should not be refrigerated.
