3 cups unbleached flour, sifted
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
Ener-G for 2 eggs, prepared
1/3 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, or spray them.
With electric mixer, cream margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add egg subs, and mix 1 minute.
Mix in orange juice and vanilla.
Add flour mixture, and mix until incorporated.
Shape into a flat disk.
Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate 20 minutes.
Divide the dough in half (it will be very sticky).
Cover half with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.
Put other half between 2 sheets of floured wax paper.
Roll out into a 13" circle, about 1/8" thick.
If dough is difficult to roll out, put in freezer to firm up.
Using a 3" floured cookie cutter, cut out circles.
Using a floured spatula, pick up circles and flip onto prepared baking sheets.
Spoon 1 & 1/2 teaspoons filling of your choice in the center of each circle.
Press 3 edges together to make a triangle, leaving a small opening in the center.
Put 1 & 1/2" inches apart on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
Reroll scraps, cut out, and fill.
Bake for 15 - 18 minutes, or until golden on the bottom.
If baking 2 sheets in one oven, rotate positions after 7 minutes.
Cool 5 minutes, and remove to racks.
Hamantaschen may be stored in airtight containers for several days.
