TWD: Rugelach








This week's recipe is Rugelach which can be found on pages 150-151. The recipe was chosen by Grace of Piggy's Cooking Journal. Good choice, Grace! The are delicious! I refrigerated the dough overnight since I started them around 6:00 in the evening and didn't realize they had to be in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Oh well! The recipe was very easy. I found the dough seemed real thin and tore some when spreading the jam. My second half I rolled out, I didn't roll so big.

I made half the Rugelach with strawberry preserves, pecans and chocolate chips. The other half had apricot-pineapple preserves, sliced almonds and 1/2 had chocolate chips. I tasted them both and they both were delicious. I think I may prefer the apricot-pineapple ones better.




My Rugelach came out very messy looking, but who cares! They were GOOD!!

I think it was hard to make a non-messy version of rugelach. Your flavor combinations sound wonderful!
