Grandma sally's hamentaschen

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1¼ cup Melted shortening
1 cup Sugar
3 \N Eggs -- beaten
1 \N Grated lemon (whole
\N \N (fills 1/2 of dough recipe)
2 pounds Partly cooked pitted prunes
5 tablespoons Or 6 Tb Jelly (whatever kind you have on hand) not just peel)
4 cups Flour (scant), sifted with:
1 teaspoon Salt -- and
3 teaspoons Baking powder
1 cup Raisins
1 \N Orange or 1/2 lemon
1 cup Nuts
\N \N Shake of cinnamon



Combine the dough ingredients to form dough. Grind the filling ingredients together with a food grinder.

Roll out the dough and cut circles with a glass. Put a spoonful of filling in the center of each circle, and fold up sides of the dough to form triangular filled cookies.

Bake at 400 F until lightly browned.

I haven't actually made this recipe, but I've been enjoying the hamentaschen for years.

For poppyseed filling, I think I'd just use the solo filling from the can. I've made my own hamentaschen using various jams for filling, with some success. Good luck.
