Servings: About 12

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons ground flax seed combined with 6 tablespoons water (if you want classic dough and not vegan, replace the flax seed water mixture with two eggs)
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup raspberry Jam (or your fav flavor!)
Frosting (recipe below)
Sprinkles for decorating

Frosting:
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
Cream together flax seed water mixture, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Slowly add flour and baking powder. Mix together. The dough might be crumbly, use your hands to smooth it out and combine it. Roll out dough on floured surface. Cut out triangles using a triangle cookie cutter. If you do not have a triangle shaped cookie cutter, trace out a bunch of hexagons connected then cut them out to create triangles. Fill center of triangle with 1/2 tsp. jam then cover with another triangle gently pressing the edges down. Using a fork crimp the edges down all around. Bake on 350′ for about 15 minutes. Once cookies have cooled off, combine frosting ingredients and frost the center of each triangle and immediately place sprinkles on top before the frosting hardens.

  • Hi Nina! Love this idea… two questions:
    1. what kind of oil should I use (the recipe doesn’t specify)
    2. how many days in advance can I make them so that they are ready for Wednesday nigh/Thursday?

    THANKS!!

    • Hi Susan! If you want the dough to be vegan, use the flax seed water mixture if you want classic dough use two eggs in place of the flax seed water mixture.

  • Can you please tell me if this will work 100% if I have to make these with Gluten Free flour while also keeping it vegan..?

    Soooo much of the time, regular vegan recipes cookie recipes do not ever accurately convert over to a gluten free version. The flour and liquid and sugar ratios are always slightly “off” when you try swapping in gluten free flour cup for cup for wheat flour…and I never know what to do to fix anything.

    I don’t really want to waste food if I can help it…

    Can you please help?

    Maybe by creating a recipe for batch of gluten free vegan pop tart hamantaschen that taste awesomely like the real thing…?

    :)

    :)

    Thank you!!

    • Hi Alli! I have not baked this recipe using gluten free flour so I cannot tell you it will come out if making the swap. I would like to experiment with future recipes using gluten free flour and will keep you updated when I do. If you try the recipe using gluten free flour please update us here and let us know how it comes out.
