Hamentashen Cookies

Use our Duncan Hines Golden Yellow Cake mix and your favourite fruit filling to bake these Hamentashen cookies, perfect for Purim.


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and flour. Stir in the eggs, oil and water to form a stiff dough.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch round circles and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Place a teaspoon of filling into the centre of each cookie and pinch the sides to form three corners. Moisten with water if necessary.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
  6. Tip: One of the Baker's Club members tried this with Red Velvet Cake Mix, cream cheese, white chocolate chips and confectioner's sugar -- she says it was a hit!
