Classic Hamantaschen {Dairy-Free}

These must be the easiest crunchy on the outside and cake-y on the inside Classic Hamantaschen.

Easy to make,
No need equipment. Just basically a bowl, a whisk and an oven.

It is made with simple, accessible ingredients.
Seven to be exact.

To make these Classic Hamantaschen, you’ll need the most basic ingredients for baking: Flour, sugar, eggs, oil and some flavorings. In this particular recipe I used melted coconut oil to avoid the vegetable oil, but you can use vegetable oil if that’s what you have on hand.

What I love the most about these cookies is that you don’t need a stand-mixer or hand mixer. Your hands, a whisk and a bowl will do the trick. All you have to do is mix all ingredients (except flour) in a bowl. Then, incorporate most of the flour, making sure there is not dry bits when you finish mixing. Finally, add the last 50 grams or so of flour, and work the dough lightly with your hands to finish mixing very well (make sure you don’t overwork it).

Some of you may be wondering, “how do I weight eggs?” In USA, you’ll find a standard large egg is about 50 grams and, an extra large weighs approximately 55 grams. To measure eggs by weight start by cracking a few into a bowl until you are close to the amount you need. Once you are short a few grams, take another egg, whisk it on a separate bowl, and weigh the amount you need. 

This is not your typical cookie dough. It is slightly sticky and that can make it a bit challenging to work. You can help yourself with baking paper, or just shape the cookies in your hands. It might be helpful to use gloves or lightly oil your palms before starting.

All you have to do is place one ball of dough  in your hand, flatten it out to form a circle, place the jam on the center and fold in the edges to form a triangle. You can also roll out the dough and between two sheets of baking paper. 

My favorite fillings for these cookies are berries jam, pineapple jam, Nutella or chocolate chips, and peanut butter, but the possibilities are endless. If you need some inspiration check these posts for some sweet and savory ideas:

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 450 gr Self-Rising Flour*

  • 125 gr Eggs
  • 100 gr Coconut Oil, melted** (or vegetable oil)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


  • In a bowl mix eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla extract and salt.

  • Weight balls 0f 30 grams each (each ball will be a cookie). Place the dough on your hands, flatten the dough out, shaping a circle with approximately 1/4" thickness.
  • Place your preferred jam in the center, then fold in the sides of the circle to achieve a triangular shape.
  • Place carefully on a baking sheet covered with parchment and bake at 180°C (350°F) for aprox. 12-15 minutes or until the bottom is light golden brown.
  • Let them rest for about 5 minutes on the baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely if you really can wait lol (I couldn't!)


  • For this recipe I use Self-Rising flour because is the one I had at home. If you don't have it you can also mix All-Purpose with 1 1/2 (one and a hallf) teaspoon of baking powder. Mix well and sift a couple of times for even distribution of the baking powder.
  • You can also use vegetable oil for this recipe, or any other with mild flavor.
