Vegan Hamantaschen Cookies
The traditional cookies of Purim in a vegan festive version. Crunchy cookies filled with Halva spread and garnished with sprinkles.
(150 grams) flour
(40 grams) powdered sugar
(80 grams) coconut oil (refrigerated so it is solidified)
Pinch of salt
For the filling and garnish:
Halva spread (sweet sesame seed spread)
In a blender bowl, blend the flour, powdered sugar, salt and coconut oil until it becomes a crumbly mixture.
Add the water and continue to blend until the dough starts to unify.
Shape the dough into a disc-shape on baking paper and put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and roll out on a floured surface.
Using a glass or a round cookie cutter, cut circles out of the dough.
Fill each dough circle with 1 teaspoon of halva spread and close up the dough into a triangular-shaped cookies.
Sprinkle the sprinkles over each cookie.
Place the cookies on a baking tray.
Place the baking tray with the cookies in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven to 170°C / 350°F fan.
Bake the cookies for 14 minutes. Check them after about 10 minutes and if they're starting to get too brown, take them out.
Indulge and Happy Purim!
*If you want to avoid the coconut flavor use purified coconut oil- it has no flavor.
