Gluten-Free Almond & Raspberry Thumbprint Hamantashen


Yields approximately two dozen hamantashen



  • 2.5 cups Pereg Gluten Free Almond Meal Flour
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Raspberry oven-proof jam



Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Whip egg whites until fluffy.

Mix in sugar, almond flour, salt and vanilla until combined.

Scoop a ball of dough, about an inch in diameter. Place on the parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Shape dough into triangle hamantashen shape with your hands (spray some non-stick spray on your hands so the dough won’t stick). Using your thumb, make an indent into the center of the triangle, and fill with jam. Repeat process until all the dough is used.

Allow two inches in between cookies so they will not stick to each other when baking.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. Cool completely before removing from parchment paper. Enjoy!
