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.

    I think yours look beautiful! I loved the flavor combinations too! I wasn’t sure with the cinnamon/chocolate/fruit if it would taste right- but it was wonderful!

    WOW! Those looks great! I’m a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure 🙂 Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com

    I think they look very elegant sitting there with your tea (which is exactly what I had with my cookies!)
