Vegan Raspberry Hamantaschen
Servings: about 25 hamantaschen
2 T ground flax seed combined with 6 T water
1/2 cup oil
1 t vanilla extract
2/3 cup sugar
2 t baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup Raspberry Jam (or your fav flavor of Jam! Chocolate spread can also be used)
Powdered sugar or melted chocolate for decorating
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 Jam (about 1/2 tsp each) and bake on 350′ for about 8 to 10 minutes. Once baked allow to cool off before topping with powdered sugar. Optional, melt dark chocolate and drizzle over hamantaschen!
* 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.
