Lemon Hamantaschen #CreativeCookieExchange


  • 2 1/4 cups  flour
  • 1 tsp  baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp  salt
  • 1 to 2 tsp milk/ water if needed
  • 2/3 cup  sugar
  • eggs
  • 1/4 cup  melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp  vanilla essence
  • 2 tsp  lemon zest


  • Lemon Curd Recipe follows soon


  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt
  2. Put the eggs, oil, vanilla essence, lemon zest and sugar into a food processor, followed by the dry ingredients and pulse to make a quick and smooth dough.
  3. If the dough is a bit dry add some water or milk. In colorado, I always have to add extra moisture
  4. Heat the oven to 350* F.
  5. Lightly flour a work area and roll out the dough . Roll it out as thin as you can ( 1/4th to 1/8th of an in)
  6. Cut rounds with a 3 in cookie cutter. Place the rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Collect the scraps of dough and re roll and cut again, until all the dough is rolled and cut.
  8. Keep the cut out circles covered at all times so that they don't dry out. They will be difficult to shape if they dry out.
  9. Place 1 tsp of lemon curd in the center of each circle.
  10. For shaping, I suggest you visit Laura's blog and see the step by instructions because pictures speak louder than words can.
  11. once you have filled and shaped all cookies, bake them at 350* F for 20 minutes
