Directions:
For the dough: Combine the 1 1/2 cups flour, salt, and butter; rubbing the butter into the flour with your fingers. In a separate bowl, mix the egg yolks with a fork. Combine the eggs into the flour mixture. Add the vinegar and the water and combine. Add the one cup of flour, sifting in into the mixture. Blend well with a fork. Store, covered, in the refrigerator overnight.

For the apricot filling: Wash the apricots, add the water and cook over a low heat until very soft, adding more water if necessary. Add the sugar and heat, stirring constantly until the fruit comes to a boil. Cool, cover and store in refrigerator.

To complete the Haman Tashen: When ready to use, pinch off the dough the size of a walnut and roll on a floured surface into 2 1/2 rounds. Place a level teaspoon of the filling in the center. Pinch the sides together forming a closed triangle over the filling. Cut the pinched edges about 1/4" deep at 1/2" intervals to give a scalloped top when baked. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until browned.
