I like to make healthy stuff, but once in a while I do go all out for a holiday treat and this is the best way. Using my grandmothers dough recipe with nutella, how can you go wrong.

  • Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients (7)

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 21/2 cups flour
  • 21/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Nutella


  1. Mix margarine, sugar and vanilla in food processor. Add eggs. In a separate bowl mix 2½ teaspoons baking powder with 2½ cups flour. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix until dough forms.
  2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut circles with a small cup and drop 1/2 teaspoon Nutella into the center. Bring the dough up around the filling and press the three ends together forming a triangle.
  3. Bake at 375 degress on a well greased cookie sheet for 10 to 15 minutes. Optional: brush hamantashen with egg wash before baking for a more golden color.
