The Jewish holiday of Purim is next week. One of the customary things to eat on Purim is hamantashen. I have been trying out several different hamantashen recipes for some time now. Each recipe was not good enough to share with you.
Then after a bunch of fails I remembered that I have a recipe on my blog for No Sugar, Sugar Cookies. That dough may be perfect for hamantashen!
I quickly got to work and after adjusting the recipe a bit, I came up with a delicious tasting hamantashen recipe that I am sure you will enjoy.
Many recipes say to chill the dough in the fridge, but this recipe does not need it.
There are two things most people have a problem with when making hamantashen.
1-Keeping them closed
2-The filling leaking out.
This dough will not open, but to be sure of that you need to pinch the corners together really well.
A great way from keeping the filling from leaking out is to push your thumb into the middle of the dough where you will be placing the filling. This imprint gives the filling a little pocket to “sit“ in and helps prevent it from bubbling over while cooking.
So lets get to the recipe shall we?
