This is a simple Hamantashen recipe which you can make with your children. Baking holiday treats with your kids is a great way to create special holiday memories which they will carry on with them.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 2/3 cup margarine, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose white flour
  • pie filling
  • egg, beaten
  • sugar for garnish


1. Blend butter and sugar thoroughly.
2. Add flour and orange juice, alternating.
3. Refrigerate batter for a few hours.
4. Roll out dough as thin as you can.
5. Cut out 3-4 inch circles.
6. Put a tablespoon of filling in the middle of each circle.
7. Fold up 3 sides to form a triangle (Overlap the sides so only a little filling shows through the middle).
8. Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-15 minutes (bake until golden brown, but take out before the filling boils over).
