I seem to be on a desserts stretch the past few posts during Adar 1 & 2! With Purim starting in a couple of days, I assume people are busy preparing their mishloach manot. I hope you enjoy the following recipe for vegan hamantaschen, that I wrote for the Borough Market website. It is a modified version of a recipe that I found on the blog, Musical Assumptions). I filled them with my date paste and strawberry jam recipes.
1 cup flour
generous 1/3 cup sugar (the recipe calls for ½ cup but I reduced it)
1/4 cup olive oil (if olive oil is too strong a flavor for you, try sunflower oil instead)
2-3 Tbsp non-dairy milk
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
Filled with date paste and strawberry jam
1.Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2. Mix all of the ingredients together, slowly adding the milk last. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes until smooth.
3. Roll the dough out on a floured countertop of board until thin. Cut into circles (use a mug or glass to make the circles in the dough. It should give you enough for about 15 small hamantaschen or 10 larger ones.
4. Place a teaspoon of the filling in the middle of the dough. Fold each into a triangular shape, pinching the corners closed. Place on parchment paper lined tray.
5. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, until lightly golden. Remove, let cool and enjoy.
