Dried Plum Hamantaschen

Prep Time  30 minutes Cook Time  15 minutes Serves  25

Ingredients

Pastry :
13 oz all-purpose flour
14 1/2 oz sugar
6 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
12 oz butter or margarine
3 each eggs lightly beaten
4 1/2 oz lemon juice
3 T grated lemon peel

Filling:
36 oz coarsely chopped dried plums*
3 oz diced dried apples
36 oz apple juice
8 oz honey
3 oz lemon juice
6 1/2 oz chopped walnuts

*Canned dried plums may be substituted for pitted dried plums. Drain liquid and pat dry with a paper towel.

Directions

Heat oven to 400°F.

For Pastry: In mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add butter; mix with fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in egg, lemon juice and peel, mixing just until blended. With hands, gather dough into a ball. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.

For Filling: In a saucepan, combine dried plums, apples and apple juice. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until some of the liquid is absorbed. Add honey and lemon juice; cook and stir 5 minutes. Stir in nuts; remove from heat. Set aside. On well-floured surface, roll pastry to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 4 1/2-inch circles. Using rounded tablespoonfuls of filling, form a mound in center of each circle. Fold up side of dough in thirds to form a triangle, pinching together at all three corners and leaving a generous opening at the top. Place, 2 inches apart, on lightly greased baking sheets.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until edges just begin to turn golden. Remove to wire rack; cool.
