Rugelach Recipe

Friday, December 12, 2014
A must make every year for the cookie tray! We love the nuts, cinnamon and raspberry filling in these flaky little cookies. They are truly delightful and everyone asks me to make them. I have used this dough to fill them with Nutella and Hazelnuts as well very versatile dough for all the baking needs, it works well with jams or all kinds, almond paste filled so maybe you can think of a few more combination you like to fill these with, these are our traditional favorite.

Roll dough out into rounds. Spread with jam, then filling below.

1 batch of dough click here for the recipe

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup chopped coarsely of walnuts
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 jar seedless raspberry jam

Cut into triangles, like a pie and roll up to the tips. Bend like ends like moon shaped and place on parchment paper or silpat mat. You can brush with egg and sprinkle with coarse or granulated sugar before baking. I didn't add the egg wash to mine just sugar.

Bake at 375 degrees until browned on top around 11 minutes.
