Preparation

1
Combine all dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together all liquid ingredients. Gradually add dry ingredients to the liquid to form a dough. Knead dough for 5 - 10 minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Spray a large mixing bowl with Pam and place dough inside. Spray Pam on dough and cover loosely with a towel until dough doubles in size.

Punch down dough. Divide into thirds on a lightly floured surface. Roll out each piece until it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut out 3 inch rounds. Re-roll scraps.
3
Place filling in the center of each dough round. Fold three sides up to form a triangle, leaving some filling exposed in the center.
4
Place hamentashen 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Cover again and let rise at room temperature until nearly double, about one hour.
5
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush tops of the hamentashen with the egg wash.
6
Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
