Ingredients

Process

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. In a medium sized sauce pan, add the prunes, raisins, water, lemon juice, and maple syrup. Heat over medium heat.
  2. Bring filling to a boil, while stirring. Continue to stir frequently, while "mashing" the filling with a wooded spoon.
  3. Once the liquid has reduced, and you have a thick filling of plump prunes and raisins, remove from heat and set aside for filling the cookies.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, arrowroot, and salt.
  6. Add in the vanilla extract, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil. Stir until all ingredients are combined and you have a ball of cookie dough. **You can use your hands for this as well.
  7. Place ball of dough on to a sheet of parchment paper, adding additional arrowroot flour and kneading the dough until it is firm enough to be rolled and cut into shapes.
  8. Place another sheet of parchment paper over the dough, and roll into a 1/4 inch thick layer.
  9. Dust dough with additional arrowroot, as well as dip the cookie cutter in arrowroot flour, so the dough does not stick.
  10. Carefully cut circles in the dough, and remove the excess dough from around the circles.
  11. Add about a teaspoon (give or take) of filling to the center of the cookies, and carefully fold three sides in, making a triangular shape. Pinch the corners in to seal the cookies.
  12. Transfer the parchment to a baking sheet, and bake cookies for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.
  13. Repeat this process using a fresh sheet of parchment, for the remainder of the dough, until you have used all of the cookie dough.
  14. Any remaining filling can be frozen and saved for future use.

      We love these. I made them for my husband’s grandmother on her birthday two years ago and again last year. She told me I make hamentaschen as good as any Jewish lady,which is the highest praise (given that I am not Jewish) . Sadly, she passed on at the end of last year,but I made them again for her birthday this year. They are absolutely delicious and I will make them every year in her memory.
