One of my favorite cookies tie into one of my favorite holidays (Purim) where you dress up and make lots of noise. Tasty vegan baked goods are hard to find, but these are surprisingly delicious.
4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
4 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup margarine at room temperature (I used earth balance)
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tsp vanilla extract
filling – pie filing is fine, I prefer fruit preserves (apricot, raspberry, etc)
In a large bowl, beat flour, baking powder, salt margarine, sugar, water and vanilla with a mixer set on medium. Add a small amount of additional water if necessary to smooth. (I added close to 1/2 cup more)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 2-3 cookie sheets.
Roll dough to 1/4″ thickness. Cut out 3″ circles with cookie cutters or the top of an upside down glass.
Place spoonfuls of desired filling into center of each circle and fold into triangular shape. Warning, these need a lot of room in the pan – they expand quite a bit!
Bake for 10-20 minutes or until slightly browned. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks. Baking time may vary depending on your oven.
