HAMANTASHEN

HAMANTASHEN

1 cup sweet white rice flour

½ cup tapioca starch

½ cup potato starch

(or use 2 cups of teff flour -- or if you don't need to be gluten free use whole wheat or spelt flour)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

1/3 cup honey (or sugar or agave)

2 large eggs + 1 extra egg white (separated) (if you want to try a vegan route -- try using 3 tablespoons ground flax or hemp seeds mixed with 2 tablesoons hot water for the egg yolks and use the same ratio of arrowroot to water for the egg whites)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

10 oz of apricot butter (see note on how to make it)

Granulated sugar for sprinkling

Maxing the dough:
Sift flours, baking powder, soda, and salt.

Beat honey and egg yolks until frothy. Beat in vanilla.

Slowly blend in dry mixture

Whisk egg whites until frothy Add 2/3 of this to the batter.

Less traditional looking:
Press dough – thinly- into the bottom of a greased muffin tin -> Add dollops of apricot butter -> Top with a thin layer of dough (create ‘purses’ or ‘pockets’) -> Brush tops with leftover egg white and sprinkle with sugar

More traditional looking:
roll out between two sheets of wax or parchment paper -> cut into circles -> dollop apricot butter into center of circle -> fold in a pinwheel style to create a triangle with a fruit center -> Brush tops with leftover egg white and sprinkle with sugar

Either way:
Bake in pre-heated 325 degree oven for 15- 20 minutes.



NOTE:
Puree 3 parts dried apricots and 2 parts softened butter
Or
Boil 1 cup water with every 2.5 cups apricots until soft. Puree 3 parts boiled dried apricots with the leftover water with 1 part honey
