Gluten Free Raspberry Hamantaschen Recipe

Must Try

I created this Gluten Free Hamantaschen with Raspberry Filling recipe after I was paid a visit by the Rebbetzin, Eve here in Boulder.

Gluten Free Hamantaschen with Raspberry Filling

She had gone gluten free and given up white sugar as well. We had tea in my kitchen and chatted, having such a pleasant time together.

A few days later, Eve emailed me looking for a gluten free recipe for this Jewish dessert.

Easy Jewish Cookies Recipe

Given how special Eve is, I had to create this Gluten Free Raspberry Hamantaschen recipe in her honor.

Hamantaschen Recipe

With 7 ingredients total, it’s the easiest Purim cookie recipe you’ll ever make. Because of that, we refer to it as “Hamentaschen express,” or “McHamantaschen.”

This drive-through gluten free, dairy free treat is perfect for your Purim celebrations and Shaloch Manos. .kt-row-column-wrap{align-content:start;}:where(#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b > .kt-row-column-wrap) > .wp-block-kadence-column{justify-content:start;}#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b > .kt-row-column-wrap{column-gap:var(–global-kb-gap-none, 0rem );row-gap:var(–global-kb-gap-none, 0rem );padding-top:var( –global-kb-row-default-top, 25px );padding-bottom:var( –global-kb-row-default-bottom, 25px );padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-left:0px;padding-right:0px;grid-template-columns:minmax(0, calc(45% – ((var(–global-kb-gap-none, 0rem ) * 1 )/2))) minmax(0, calc(55% – ((var(–global-kb-gap-none, 0rem ) * 1 )/2)));}#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b{border-top-left-radius:3px;border-top-right-radius:3px;border-bottom-right-radius:3px;border-bottom-left-radius:3px;overflow:clip;isolation:isolate;}#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b > .kt-row-layout-overlay{border-top-left-radius:3px;border-top-right-radius:3px;border-bottom-right-radius:3px;border-bottom-left-radius:3px;}#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b > .kt-row-layout-overlay{opacity:0.30;}#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b > .kt-row-column-wrap{z-index:9;position:relative;}@media all and (max-width: 1024px){#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b > .kt-row-column-wrap{grid-template-columns:repeat(2, minmax(0, 1fr));}}@media all and (max-width: 767px){#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b > .kt-row-column-wrap{grid-template-columns:minmax(0, 1fr);}}#kt-layout-id_e6047c-7b .wp-block-image{margin-bottom: 0px;}]]>

SCD Cookie Recipe

If you use honey in this recipe, these Hamentaschen are an SCD compliant treat. Either way, they’re so good, they’re like a little grain free jam cookie or mini jam tart.

Vegan Hamantaschen Cookies

To make Vegan Hamantaschen swap the honey out for maple syrup.

Low Carb Hamantaschen Cookies

These Hamantaschen are a lower carb Purim treat.

But if you’re following a Ketogenic Diet use dark chocolate instead of raspberry jam in the center. I like this 80% dark chocolate.

Easy Hamentaschen Recipe

When I started making these Gluten Free Hamantaschen it was challenging to get an exact yield as my younger son, then 9 and now 24 years old, ate them almost as fast as I baked them!

Best Hamantaschen Recipe

Because this recipe is so easy, it’s one I enjoyed making with the boys when they were in elementary school. It was the perfect thing to keep those little hands busy.

When my older son and I discussed the ingredients list and method back then, for these Gluten Free Hamantaschen he was not happy that I didn’t have an exact measurement for the raspberry jam so I’ve added that measurement.

There is a lot of quality control around here.

Elana’s Pantry Quality Control

In some of the first batches, the corners of the Hamantaschen opened up a bit during baking. To remedy this, I pinched the dough firmly and the result was perfect.

When my older son and I debated which adverb to use to describe this step, he suggested, “pinch the dough a little bit more than tenderly.” He was 10 years old when we had that conversation!

How to Make Hamantaschen Cookies

While we’re on the subject of quality control, take a look at my Nut Free Hamantaschen recipe below to see just one of the Hamentaschen techniques I use.

The video below has chocolate filling and in my Gluten Free Raspberry Hamantaschen I use raspberry jam, but you’ll get the idea.
