ProudMommy's Hamentashen Recipe

Here's my mother's world famous recipe! It's got a cookie type rather than a pastry type dough.

3 eggs
1 c sugar
3/4 c orange juice
1/2 c oil
3 tsp baking powder
5 c flour
1 Tbsp orange rind
12 oz pastry filling
1/2 c raisins -- ground
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 c nuts -- chopped
1 egg -- beaten

Combine the first seven ingredients to make the dough. Refrigerate overnight. Mix the can of filling with the nuts,raisins and lemon juice. Roll out the dough, cut into circles, put a teaspoon of filling mix in the center of each circle and pinch into triangles. Brush with beaten egg thinned with a little water. Bake in 350 oven until lightly browned.
