“This is a great recipe to use when you're short on time but don't want to deprive your family of that famous Jewish fruit-filled cookie around Purim time. Versions of this recipe have circulated around the Colorado Springs Jewish community for years. At a Purim carnival one year, I asked for someone's copy of the recipe. ” - by JGIRLSCOUT

- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
- In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and flour. Stir in the eggs and water to form a stiff dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch round circles and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Place a teaspoon of filling into the center of each cookie and pinch the sides to form three corners. Moisten with water if necessary.
- Bake for 6 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

They didn't look so good, but they were delicious!"

Actually...I made these for a Hamentashen bake-off and they won against all the "traditional" recipe ones. You gotta try this!"
"This recipe is missing an important ingredient - the liquid. My preschool has used a similar recipe for years with great success. Use 1 box of yellow cake mix (Duncan Hines is pareve), 3 eggs, 1/2 C o..." See morerange juice and 2 1/2 C flour (add more if the dough is sticky). Fill with your favorite preserve & pinch closed.
