Recipe type: Dessert, Cookie
Serves: 20 Large Hamantaschen
  • ⅔ cup oil

  • Lemon Curd Filling, see recipe below
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting
Easy Microwave Lemon Curd Filling
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Whisk together the oil and sugar. Add in the eggs and whisk till combined.
  3. Mix in the flour and baking powder using a spoon. The dough should easily come together into a ball. It may require more flour, but be sure you do not add too much. You want it slightly sticky to ensure the edges stay closed.
  4. Lightly flour the surface you will be rolling the dough out on. Roll out the dough to ¼-½ an inch thickness.
  5. Use the rim of a glass cup or round cookie cutter to cut rounds of the dough. Place onto the baking sheet then place two teaspoons of lemon curd in the center of the circle. Pinch together the top and then bottom two corners creating a triangular shape.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the tops become slightly golden.
  7. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
For the Lemon Curd Filling:
  1. In a microwave safe bowl whisk together all the ingredients.
  2. Heat in the microwave for one minute. Remove and whisk.
  3. Continue microwaving for another 2 ½ minutes removing every 30 seconds to whisk. Each microwave is different, but it will begin to thicken. Once it is thick enough to only slowly drip off the spoon, it is ready. It will also thicken more as it cools.
I do not suggest that you refrigerate this dough. It takes seconds to put together making it simple to prepare right before you need it. It can sit out room temperature for a bit as well until you use it.
