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

1

Preheat oven

5

Heat the oven to 350 °F.

2

Cream sugar and wet ingredients

3

Whisk together 2 large eggs, ⅔ cup of sugar, ¼ cup of canola oil, 1 teaspoon of orange zest and 1 teaspoon of vanilla in a medium mixing bowl.

3

Sift dry ingredients

2

In a separate bowl, sift together 2¼ cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of salt.

4

Add flour and salt to wet mixture

3

Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients until a crumbly dough forms.

5

Knead dough

3

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.

6

Roll out dough

3

Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour. Roll the dough disk to ¼-inch thickness using a heavy rolling pin. Flip the dough over by scraping it up using a pastry scraper. Re-dust the surface with more flour. Roll the dough out until just under ⅛-inch thick.

7

Cut out dough circles

2

Using a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out dough circles. Gather the dough scraps together and roll them out again. Cut more circles and repeat the process with all the scraps until all the dough is used up.

8

Add filling to dough circles

2

Place one teaspoon of prune filling (Lekvar) into the center of each circle. Do not add more than 1 teaspoon or the filling might spill out when baking.

9

Fold two sides of the hamantaschen

5

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.

10

Finish folding

5

Repeat with the bottom part of the circle. When you bring this flap up, make sure you tuck the left side of this new dough flap underneath the left side of the triangle, while letting the right side of this new flap overlap the right side of the triangle.

11

Pinch dough corners

2

Pinch each corner of the dough triangle together gently but firmly to secure the shape. Do this process for each of the dough circles.

12

Bake

25

Place the folded hamantaschen on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

13

Cool

Place the cookies on a wire rack to cool.

14

Store

These cookies can be stored in a tightly sealed plastic bag or a Tupperware container.
