Birthday Cake Hamantashen


Servings: about 20 hamantashen

2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup sugar
2 t baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
1 container Frosting (from a jar like pillsbury)
2 cups sprinkles (colorful)

Cream together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Slowly add flour and baking powder. Mix together. The dough might be crumbly, use your hands to smooth it out and combine it. Add sprinkles to dough. (add the sprinkles in slowly, depending on how many sprinkles you want in the dough and don’t over mix them with the dough) Roll out dough on floured surface (about 1/4 to 1/8 thick. Not too thick since then the circles are hard to shape and will open up. Not too thin since then it will rip when shaping or filling) and cut out circles using a donut cutter or the rim of a large glass cup or mason jar. Fill center of circle with frosting (about 1 tsp) and bake on 350′ for 8 to 12 minutes depending on how soft or crispy you want them. I like them super soft so took them out around 8 to 10 minutes. Once cooked, you might notice the frosting has melted if that is the case simply add fresh frosting to the baked hamantashen. You can also top frosting with sprinkles when serving.

* How To Shape Hamantashen: Place filling in center than slowly fold over one side. Then the next and finally bring the bottom on top. Gently pinch the corners. You can also simply bring up the sides, forming a triangle by pinching the corners together.
