  • 4 cups Flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Oil
  • 1 tbsp apple juice
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 1 22 oz can lemon pie filling
  • confectioner's sugar to sprinkle on top



  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Grease cookie sheets.
  3. Place all ingredients in a large mixer bowl and beat together. You may need to add a drop more oil or flour, depending on the consistency. (Instead of continuously rolling out the dough and using a glass to cut circles, I just formed small balls and pressed them down flat. It saved a lot of effort, and it made the hamantashen slightly thicker.)
  4. Spoon a dollop of lemon pie filling in the center and pinch the corners to form a hamantash. Make sure to pinch corners really well!
  5. Place on greased cookie sheets 1 inch apart, and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Let them cool, then use a small strainer to sprinkle confectioner's sugar on top.
