Hamentashen, a recipe

I’ve just made a batch of hamentashen, thanks, Grandma!
This is a dairy recipe, and kids like it a lot.
Cream two sticks of butter with a cup of sugar and a tsp of vanilla.
Beat in three eggs.
In a separate bowl mix four cups of flour with four tsps. baking powder.
Add the flour mix a bit at a time until it’s all mixed in to the butter mixture.
Beat until smooth. Refrigerate dough for two hours.
Flour a board, and dip a glass into flour.
Roll to 1/8 inch thickness and cut out circles with the flour.
I use plum prune filling for half of my hamentashen, and mix strawberry jam with lots of chocolate chips for the rest.
Fill each circle with about half a tsp of filling, and pinch three corners to make the triangle.
I bake at 350 for about 18 (chai!) minutes.
