Rugelach [TWD]

This week of Tuesdays with Dorie/ Baking with Julia we made Rugelach. If you haven't heard of it before, rugelach is a jewish pastry usually crescent-shaped. It is made with a cream cheese dough and filled with different kinds of fruit preserves, dried fruit and nuts, sometimes also with chocolate.

I have eaten rugelach before at a jewish pastry store, but this recipe was even more delicious. I made the traditional crescent-shape and filled them with plum-butter, cinnamon-sugar, almonds, macadamia nuts and dried cranberries. I honestly just looked in my pantry and combined what I had and thought would be good together. They tasted best the first day, the dough was very flaky almost like puff pastry, but were still good two days later.

This week is hosted by Margaret of The Urban Hiker and Jessica of My Baking Heart. Please check out their pages, where you can also find the recipe of the rugelach.

Enjoy and Guten Appetit!

Beautiful crescents - so much prettier than my rolled ones! The plum butter sounds like a delicious option - I'll have to remember that!

Very lovely. (I love your pedestal stand)
I enjoyed that this recipe let you pull together all the bits and pieces from the pantry and put them to good use.
