For the pastry:

  • 1- Place in the metal bowl the butter, powdered sugar, flour, ground almonds, salt, egg yolk, orange juice, vanilla extract, and orange zest and run the PASTRY/CAKE program.
  • 2- Shape the dough into a ball, wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.

For the chocolate filling:

  • 1- Put the chocolate and butter into the metal bowl; run the EXPERT program, 5 minutes/speed 3/60 °C. Scrape down the wall of the bowl. Restart the program 30 seconds/speed 3/100 °C to smooth the filling.
  • 2- Place the ground almonds in the metal bowl and stir it until combined.
  • 3- Cool to room temperature before combining.

For the assembly and baking of the Hamantaschen cookies:

  • 1- Preheat the oven to 175c degrees.
  • 2- On a floured work surface roll out the dough to about 3-4 mm thick and cut out 5-6 cm circles.
  • 3- In each circle, place about ½ tsp of the chocolate filling in the center, save ¼ of the chocolate filling for decoration.
  • 4- To close the hamantaschen form a triangular shape by folding tree times the pastry around the filling.  
  • 5- Place in intervals on a baking pan lined with baking paper, cool in the freezer for about half an hour before baking.
  • 6- Bake for 10-14 minutes or until they are golden and completely set.
  • 7- Cool completely, then pipe the remaining chocolate filling on top and sprinkle with grounded almonds before serving.  

CHEF’S TIP :

Do not overfill the cookies, as the filling, might burst out when baking. To pipe the chocolate filling as a decoration, it might need to be reheated to be in a running consistency again.
