This recipe is based on the Jewish treat of Hamentash, eaten during the Jewish holiday of Purim. It is a filled pocket of pastry, famous for its three cornered shape. The recipe calls for a fruit preserve filling, but you can be as creative as your imagination allows - nuts, dried fruits, chocolate or cheese.


Makes: 24 Biscuits

  • 1 (520g) packet moist yellow cake mix (eg. vanilla, butter cake)
  • 1 cup (125g) plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) water
  • 1 cup fruit preserves, any flavour

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C. Grease baking trays or line with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and flour. Stir in the eggs and water to form a stiff dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 3mm thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut into round circles and place onto the prepared baking trays.
  3. Place a teaspoon of filling into the centre of each cookie and pinch the sides to form three corners. Moisten with water if necessary.
  4. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow biscuits to cool for 1 minute on the baking trays before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
