Dairy Free Hamantaschen
These Dairy Free Hamantaschen are the perfect dairy free (pareve) dessert for your Hanukkah celebration this year. If you are like me, you’re always looking out for pareve Hanukkah dessert recipes. This recipe is the perfect solution!
To make these cookies, start by making dough. When you are ready to start making your cookies, roll out the dough very thinly. Cut it into dough circles, gathering the leftover scraps and rolling them out to make new circles until all the dough is used. This dough dries out quickly so cover any dough with a slightly damp towel to prevent it from drying out while you are filling cookies with Lekvar (prune filling). Fill and fold the dough circles and bake in the oven.
To make the Dairy Free Hamantaschen, you will need the following ingredients:
Steps to make Dairy Free Hamantaschen
Heat the oven to 350 °F.
Cream sugar and wet ingredients
Sift dry ingredients
Add flour and salt to wet mixture
Use your hands to knead the dough until a smooth ball forms. Be careful not to overwork the dough. If the dough is too dry, add water slowly, 1 teaspoon at a time, kneading and adding liquid until the dough is smooth and slightly tacky to the touch. If it is too sticky, add a bit more flour until you have the desired texture.
Roll out dough
Cut out dough circles
Add filling to dough circles
Fold two sides of the hamantaschen
Take the left side of the circle and fold it towards the center to make a flap that covers the left third of the circle. Repeat with the right side of the circle, overlapping the upper part of the left side flap to create a triangular tip at the top of the circle. A small triangle of filling should still be visible in the center.
