She’s not pretty, she’s my rugelach….

6 Mar

Rugelach…I’ve wanted to make rugelach since reading about a local woman who makes what her synagogue believes to be the best ever.  So, I’m really happy to have my first TWD participation recipe to be Julia’s.  I didn’t have any difficulty with the dough itself, but rolling the fruit and nuts into each of the strips did prove rather challenging – I think next time (and I will definitely make it again!) I’ll either make the pastry rectangles larger, or use slightly less filling.  And, as many others mentioned, it’s not pretty; but oh, so delicious!

    I agree I would use a little less filling next time. The pastry is so good but is gets lost in the filling, but the filling is yummy too. It’s just one great treat.

    They’re not nice delicate cookies, but very tasty!

    hahaha. Love the title of your post – sums up the rugelach adventure (at least for me) 🙂

    you should try rolling them into crescents instead (and maybe using less filling!), I found it to be easier 🙂

    Hey, if they tasted good, pretty is secondary, right?
