This is a recipe for gluten-free, cane-sugar-free hamantaschen. They don't have a hard sugar-cookie consistency; Rather, they are more like soft, cakey pastries. Delicious! I filled half of my hamantaschen with no-sugar-added apricot preserves. The other half I filled with lekvar, a puree of dried prunes that have been softened in boiling water. You can buy canned lekvar, which has sugar or corn syrup in it, or you can try making it yourself using a traditional recipe but omitting or replacing the sugar. This recipe has no refined sugars. It uses agave nectar, which is one of the least refined sweeteners available. Though it naturally contains fructose, it is much lower on the glycemic index (GI) than other natural sweeteners, which can makes it more suitable for some diabetics, sugar-sensitive people, low-carbers, and hypoglycemics.
