How to Shape Hamentachen

Getting to Hamentaschen into their traditional triangular shape is actually much easier than it looks Though it may take some practice to get your cookies as uniform as you would like--enjoy the process! No matter how funny looking your trial runs are, they will still taste delicious!

Sprinkle flour on a flat surface. Divide dough in thirds. Take one portion and roll out until it is about 1/8th inch thick. Cut into circles with cookie cutter. Place about 1 teaspoon desired filling towards the top of the circle. Fold over the top and two sides to form a triangle. Pinch corners together and place carefully on cookie sheet. Repeat process until all the dough has been used. Combine scraps and roll again to produce a few more hamantaschen. Before baking, seal corners by pinching them together with water.
