Servings: about 22 hamantashen
2 tablespoons ground flax seed combined with 6 tablespoons water
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate spread
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 (about 1/4 to 1/8 thick. Not too thick since then the circles are hard to shape and will open up. Not too thin since then it will rip when shaping or filling) and cut out circles using a donut cutter or the rim of a large glass cup or mason jar. Fill center of circle with chocolate spread (about 1 tsp each) and bake on 350′ for about 10 minutes.
* Notes on shaping hamantashen: Place filling in center than slowly fold over one side. Then the next and finally bring the bottom on top. Gently pinch the corners.
This recipe looks great andninam making it right now! You forgot to list the oil in the ingredient list. I am assuming it needs 1/2 cup oil right?
Yes! 1/2 cup of oil. I just updated the recipe now. Thanks for brining it to my attention! This is what happens when I test out, photograph and try and type up a recipe in a rush!
Can I use honey or maple syrup instead of sugar? Same amount?
Hi Michelle, I have not tried that swap so I can’t say for sure if you do give it a try let me know how it comes out.
