cookie recipe: rugelach

December 14, 2010 in cookies,desserts,domesticity,recipe

Rugelach, my favorite, fluffy, jam-filled pastry, is a lot harder to pronounce than it is to actually make.

I found this recipe on


6 Tablespoons of granulated sugar
2 15-ounce packages of refrigerated pie crusts
2/3 cup of jam (flavor of your choice)


1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. Sprinkle the work surface with 1 tablespoon of the sugar. Unfold 1 of the crusts and place it on the sugar. Roll it to an even thickness. Spread half the jam evenly and thinly {note: definitely follow this part. must be a thing layer to avoid any excess burning in the oven} over the crust. Roll the dough tightly and sprinkle with about 1/2 tablespoon of the sugar.
3. Cut the roll into 3/4 inch thick slices. Then place them sugar side up on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, spaced about 1.5 inches apart. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
4. Bake until golden, about 22-26 minutes. Peel the cookies off the parchment paper and set on wire rack to cool.
5. Enjoy delicious and easy cookies!
I’m telling you, I was shocked at how easy these cookies were. So they are definitely a new fave in this house! Enjoy!

i really wish i could jump on board with liking fruity things. I mean like a jelly donut over a chocolate one, jam cookies over peanut butter with reese cups.

Im sure you save at least a few calories, right?

I cant do it. sigh.
