Before you start asking, YES, these hamantaschen taste just like lemonade…because there is actual lemonade in the dough and icing!!! The fun part about this recipe is that you can use your favorite lemonade flavor and they will taste so amazing!! Am I using enough exclamation points?!? Lemon lime, strawberry kiwi, pink lemonade, cherry…go nuts, people. Same goes for the filling. I used strawberry preserves so the flavor of this hamantaschen is like strawberry lemonade but you can have just as much fun with the filling as you’re having with the dough.
That color makes my heart happy. And look at the beautiful texture of this dough. It’s so easy to work with, not too sticky, doesn’t need a stand-mixer, and has no margarine. It’s almost TOO easy!
