Rugelach (literally meaning “little twists” in Yiddish) is a cross between a cookie and a pastry. This crescent-shaped cookie is made by rolling a triangular piece of dough around a sweet filling such as preserves, chocolate, dried fruits, nuts, or cinnamon sugar. Rugelach is easy to make and it is a perfect addition to a holiday cookie platter!
Rugelach is a staple at Jewish feasts around the holidays, but it is becoming more mainstream and more popular throughout the year. I love everything about these “little twists,” from the flaky cream cheese dough to the sour cherry preserves dotted with chocolate chips and pecans. I think you’ll like it, too!
