Nutella Hamantaschen

Serves: 25

1. 2 3/4 cup of flour
2. 2 teaspoons of baking powder
3. 1 stick of margarine 
4. 1 cup of sugar
5. 2 eggs 
6. 1 teaspoon of vanilla 
7. 1/2 cup of Nutella 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees 
2. Place flour and baking powder in a bowl and mix 
3. In a separate bowl, place the margarine and sugar and beat preferably using an electric mixer 
4. Add in the eggs and vanilla to the margarine mixture. Slowly add in the flour and continue to mix. The dough will begin to look like a crumbly mixture. Once this happens, finish mixing using your hands to smoothen the dough
5. Roll out the dough until it is about 1/8th of an inch thick. Cover the dough in plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge for 24 hours
6. Remove the dough from fridge and using a cookie cutter (or the rim of a drinking glass), cut out round circles about 3 inches in diameter. In the center of each circle, place 1-1/2 teaspoon of Nuttella 
7. Pinch the corners of each circle in order to create a triangular shape, leaving the middle exposed 
8. Bake for about 25 minutes or until slightly browned. Let cool before serving!
