The jewish holiday Purim is fast approaching, and this is my
fat-free version of the traditional pastries called "hamantaschen".
HAMANTASCHEN Servings: 16
Traditional Purim treat.
1 1/2 c. flour 1 TBSP. skim milk
1/4 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 c. applesauce 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 eggwhite
Filling: Any fruit preserves or pie filling.
Mix applesauce, sugar and eggwhite. Mix flour, salt and baking
powder and add to applesauce mixture. Add milk and vanilla,
Mix well with hands. Form into a ball and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Divide dough into 16 small balls. Roll out each ball to a 3.5 inch
diameter circle (you will need extra flour for hands and board,
since the dough is sticky). Place in the center of each circle
one (heaping) tsp. of the filling. Form triangles by folding over edges
of circle and pinch to create three corners, leaving a small amount of
the filling in the center uncovered.
Bake on a sprayed cookie sheet, at 375F, 10-15 minutes or until
