Delicious Gluten Free Prune Hamantashen

prune hamantashenHamantashens are a traditional cookie shaped in a triangle, like Haman’s hat, made for the festive minor Jewish holiday of Purim. Haman is an evil character from the Purim story, read on Purim from a special book called the Megillah. The fillings for this cookie vary, including poppy seeds, cherry, apricot and strawberry fillings. Prune is a family favorite of ours. Recipes abound for these delicious cookies, but after much experimentation I have recently settled on this recipe, They can be enjoyed year round and several Jewish delis and bakeries bake them all year. They are always made at this time of year, during the holiday of Purim.

You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy this delectable treat. My close Christian and Muslim neighbors and friends have looked forward to Purim and enjoyed these delicious cookies, along with our family over the years!  It is like a super mini pie cookie, loved by all. I have made changes to make this recipe as nutrient dense as possible. Hope you enjoy them! Continue reading

Home made, gluten free organic apple pie

applepieI rarely make home made apple pie, but I am moved to do so on Thanksgiving and other special occasions. I use a recipe very close to my mother’s recipe which serves as a nice reminder of my mom, whose sweet memory I carry with me. I use less sugar than the original recipe and play with the crust, using a gluten- free crust which seems to vary a bit each year. I usually serve it warmed with home made vanilla ice cream. It is definitely a family favorite in our household. Continue reading

Ice cream is loved the world over for its sweetness and creamy, cool taste.  Vanilla ice cream is a favorite dessert in our home. We enjoy it alone or occasionally combined with other sweets like warmed home made apple pie or gluten free brownies for an extra decadent treat. If I am in the mood for chocolate, I may add raw organic chocolate syrup to my ice cream. (Wilderness Family Naturals has a chocolate syrup with the cacao left intact.) Raw cacao is extremely high in anti-oxidants. Occasional desserts as part of a well balanced diet are acceptable and can be enjoyed on special occasions.

Ice cream made with real, nutrient dense ingredients is probably one of the healthiest sweets around. Continue reading
