As I've never been a fan of the jelly filled Hamentashen, I've always experimented with alternatives to be used as fillings. With Candy Melts, I've discovered another idea. They're neat ,colorful and cheerful and can easily match your color theme for Mishloach Manos and Purim Seudah.
4 sticks margarine
5 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Assorted color candy melts
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Place margarine and sugar in the bowl of your mixer. Mix well and then add the remaining ingredients. Mix until a dough is formed.
3. Roll out dough to 1/8" thickness, using a little flour if necessary.
4. With a round 3" cookie cutter or the top of a glass, cut circles out of the dough.
5. Place 2 candy melts in the center of each circle (one on top of the other) and fold up the edges to form a triangle.
6. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes, the edges should be slightly golden brown.
