Tuesdays with Dorie-Rugelach
I have seen Rugelach in some upscale bakeries, but I never knew what the mysterious little cookies contained until I read the recipe that Piggy from Piggy's Cooking Journal chose for this Tuesdays with Dorie edition. What a luscious combination of jam, cinnamon sugar, nuts, currants, and chppped chocolate. I knew I would like it especially since the dough contained cream cheese and butter which would surely make a tender cookie.
Just like the "little black dress", Rugelach will always be in style, as a fancy cookie for an elegant party or for a casual afternoon tea. Mine weren't as pretty as the photo in Dorie's book. I think I should have spread a thinner layer of jam as it oozed out of the cookie while baking. But this is the first time I have made this cookie, so I will be more careful in the future. A great cookie, though! Check out all the posts from the TWD blog roll on this wonderful little tea or coffee time treat. Grace from Piggy's Cooking Journal has the recipe.
