I love finding fresh figs while I’m grocery shopping, especially when they are actually on my grocery list! So on a recent trip to Trader Joes when I saw the figs just hanging out and waiting for some love, they called to me and I answered back…by roasting and smashing them and stuffing them in sweet, salty and crunchy gluten free dough. This very special dough is adapted from Primal Palate’s hamantaschen recipe that I love to make Purim time so I’ve turned it into a turnover to eat year round.
Gotta fill those turnovers! I love that this gluten free dough is pliable and won’t break when you fold it over the filling.
They stayed closed!! All of the turnovers came out perfectly. No cracked dough, no leaky filling, just perfectly baked gluten free turnovers.
I sprinkled the hot turnovers with fresh lemon and orange zest for a little added flair. These turnovers are best fresh but will last for 2-3 days in an airtight container on the counter. Normally I refrigerate gluten free baked goods but this dough has a nice crunch to it that will get ruined in the fridge.
