Hamentaschen Honey Dough

In a mixer, combine: 4 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder in bowl of mixer. Add 1/2 cup softened shortening, 4 eggs and 1 cup honey. Combine until smooth. You may need to add up to 3/4 cup additional flour to get the dough to a good consistency: think cookie dough… that’s what it is.

You can use this to make Hamentaschen: Roll dough to 1/8-inch thick, cut into 21/2 inch circles, fill (see Poppy Seed Filling or Prune Filling or buy commercial fillings), form into triangles, brush with beaten egg and bake for 15-18 minutes at 350 F convection). It’s also the dough for making Fluden. See Hamentaschen Sugar Dough for an alternate recipe.
