As you know, I have had to eliminate eggs from my diet to accommodate for Baby Boy. Here is the recipe I came up with for hamentashen, hopefully just in time for those celebrating Purim today. Enjoy!
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp applesauce
1 Tbsp oil (I used Canola)
2 Tbsp aged Tequila (or other dark liquor of your choice)
2 Tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp lemon and/or orange rind
pinch of salt
90 grams butter
1- Combine all the ingredients except for the butter.
2- Cut COLD butter up into several pieces and knead them into the dough.
3- Let chill for several hours until the dough is hard enough to roll out (not sticky).
4- Flour your surface, roll out dough to appx 3 mm width.
5- Cut out circles using a wide cup, fill with jam or filling of your choice, and fold into triangles.
6- Bake at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes (until bottom is golden).
