hamantaschen (repost of 1996 recipe)

I didn't see this in the archives but it was sent to the list last
year. It got at least one very positive feedback letter and I'll
probably try making them this year.

     The jewish holiday Purim is fast approaching, and this is my 
     fat-free version of the traditional pastries called "hamantaschen". 

     HAMANTASCHEN                  Servings: 16

     Traditional Purim treat.

     1 1/2  c.        flour                  1   TBSP. skim milk
     1/4    tsp.      salt                   1   tsp.  baking powder
     1/4    c.        applesauce             1/2 c.    sugar
     1/2    tsp.      vanilla                1         eggwhite

     Filling:  Any fruit preserves or pie filling.

     Mix applesauce, sugar and eggwhite.  Mix flour, salt and baking 
     powder and add to applesauce mixture. Add milk and vanilla, 
     Mix well with hands. Form into a ball and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. 
     Divide dough into 16 small balls. Roll out each ball to a 3.5 inch 
     diameter circle (you will need extra flour for hands and board,
     since the dough is sticky). Place in the center of each circle
     one (heaping) tsp. of the filling.  Form triangles by folding over edges 
     of circle and pinch to create three corners, leaving a small amount of 
     the filling in the center uncovered. 
     Bake on a sprayed cookie sheet, at 375F, 10-15 minutes or until 
     golden brown.
