Apricot Hamantaschen - the Dough

It's that time of year again - when I make this special dessert cookie. So good - I really should try and make it more often - so good.

Here's the recipe I used this year -  Buttery Hamantaschen
Please visit the original recipe with all the pictures.  Saves me having to take my own pictures -
