Are you making this? 
3/4 c Sugar
2 ts Baking Powder
2 Eggs
1/2 c Vegetable oil
1 md Seedless orange
3 c Flour
Jam or other fillings

Original recipe makes 1 Servings



Cut the orange into quarters and pulverize it in your food processor until finely chopped. Add the eggs, sugar and oil, and process for about 10 seconds. Add the baking powder and flour and process with several on/off turns, just until the flour is blended into dough. It will be slightly sticky, but thats OK. Cut the dough into 3 or 4 pieces, and work with just one lump at a time. Roll the dough out on a well-floured board to about 1/8 inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter (or a glass, like Im sure Auntie Rivka would have done) cut 3-inch circles of dough. In the middle of each circle, put about 1/2 teaspoon of filling: jam, chocolate chips, or even canned pie filling. Pinch the sides of the circle up, making a triangular enclosure, and leaving the top slightly open so that you can see the filling. Just make sure that the corners are firmly pinched so that the jam doesnt leak out the sides. Makes about 4 dozen delicious hamantaschen.
