Fig Hamantaschen with Walnuts and Orange

Traditional Jewish cookies are dressed up with figs, walnuts, and a hint of orange. 

Ingredients

  • PASTRY
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING
  • 1/2 cup fig jam
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
  • Step by Step Directions

    1. Beat sugar, butter, and cream cheese in a bowl at low speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour and salt; continue beating until dough forms.

      Shape dough into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or until firm.

      Heat oven to 375°F.

      Combine all filling ingredients in a bowl; set aside.

      Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8 - 1/4-inch thickness. Cut dough with floured 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

      Spoon 1/2 teaspoon filling in center of each round. Lift up edges of each circle at 3 points; pinch points together very firmly, forming a triangle and leaving the center open.

      Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. (Tarts will open slightly as they bake.) Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely.
