Eggless Hamentashen

Purim’s coming up in a couple of weeks and I have been looking for an eggless hamentashen recipe to try. I have not tried this one but it comes from a book called The Low Fat Jewish Vegetarian Cookbook by Debra Wasserman. It has a lot of eggless recipes in it that are very interesting.

  • 1½ cups unbleached white flour
  • 1½ cups unbleached wheat pastry flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 3 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 5 Tablespoons prune or other type of fruit filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all the ingredients, except filling, together in a large bowl. Knead dough for a few minutes. Separate into 3 balls. Cover balls with a slight damp towel and refrigerate dough for about 3 hours. Remove from refrigerator and roll balls of dough out to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out approximately 15 four-inch rounds. Place 1 teaspoon fruit filling in the center.  Form a triangle out of the dough by folding in edges, but still leaving some space in the middle of the dough for the filling to remain mostly uncovered.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until dough is brown. Serve.

If you are looking for a Gluten Free Hamentashen recipe, I found this one: http://www.couldntbeparve.com/2011/03/gluten-free-hamentashen/. However, it has ingredients in it that I am allergic to, so I am definitely not trying this one.
