Tuesdays with Dorie: Rugelach

Grace of Piggy’s Cooking Journal chose Rugelach for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie event.

I baked mine this afternoon, in preparation for a small election result-watching dinner party. They were a big hit.

Dorie's recipe calls for a simple dough (only flour, butter, cream cheese, & a pinch of salt) filled with marmalade, dried currants, nuts, and chocolate. I used black cherry jam, dried cranberries, & pecans (no chocolate).

Overall, this is a very easy recipe to throw together. The dough is mixed in a food processor, then formed into to disks that are chilled for a couple hours.

You simply roll out the chilled dough into two big circles, then top with the filling of your choice (you could use any combination of flavors in the filling), cut into triangles & roll up before baking.
