BASIC OIL DOUGH

Dessert

Yield: enough dough for 4 dozen Hamentaschen.

1 medium-sized seedless orange (thin-skinned)
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
2 3/4 cups flour (approximately)
2 tsp baking powder

This dough is excellent as a pareve cookie dough or is ideal for Hamentaschen. Try some of the scrumptious fillings (see featured recipes).

Cut orange in quarters but do not peel. Process in a food processor until fine, using the steel blade, about 25 seconds. Add eggs, sugar and oil. Process for 10 seconds. Add flour and baking powder. Process with several on/offs, just until flour is blended into dough. Do not over-process. Dough will be fairly sticky. Remove from bowl with a rubber spatula onto a lightly floured surface. Use as directed.
