Hamantaschen Hack!

This year, the snow and the pandemic keep us inside -- the perfect time to bake!
Use Duncan Hines Golden Yellow Cake mix and your favorite fruit filling
to bake hamantaschen for Purim.


  • 1 box Duncan Hines Golden Yellow Cake Mix
  • 2 cups of canned pie filling, any flavor
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. water


  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 center 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.


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!

NOTE: Essentially you can use any Duncan Hines mix and add an extra cup of flour – the filling is whatever your family likes best.
