Missing ingredient My recipe is the same, but also calls for 1/2 cup salted butter (2 sticks). My Hamantashen is perfect every year, even with 5 cups of flour. Reply

Hamentashen I believe ther is an error in the amount of flour listed in your recipe for Hamentashen.
I alwas bake however, have't made Hamentashen in a long time. Used your recipe, just cut ingredients in halves. Only put in one and a half cups flour, the dough was so hard I threw it out. I'm sure one cup of flour would have been enough for half the ingredients. More than likely this will be the same if the full recipe is used. 5 cups of flour with such little liquid sounded a lot to me as did the amount when ingredients were halved.
Our 5 year Great grandson was coming over and I wanted to give him some to take home. I was very disappointed. Reply

Dough Yes you can freeze the dough, but if you're preparing it only the night before it's enough to refrigerate it. Enjoy. Reply
