Purim is just around the corner, and I’m celebrating with my all-time favorite Jewish cookie, the hamantaschen. These triangular cookies are meant to represent the three-cornered hat of Haman. This isn’t your Bubbe’s traditional prune or poppy filled treat, instead, I’m having cookies for breakfast with this savory hamantaschen full of bagel flavor. Make this recipe for Everything Bagel Hamantaschen!
In a food processor, combine flours, baking powder, and bagel spice.
Cut in butter until it resembles a coarse meal.
Stream in the egg and add water one tablespoon at a time until a dough forms.
Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for one hour.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two trays with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine chives and cream cheese.
On a floured surface, roll dough to one-fourth-inch thickness. Cut three-inch circles and transfer to the lined baking trays. Portion half a tablespoon in the center of each circle. Brush the outer edges with egg wash.
Fold or pinch into a triangle shape.
Brush the tops with egg wash and sprinkle with everything bagel spice.
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool on the tray.
