I’m sure when you think of a crescent shaped pastry, you think of croissants. Same here. Until today. Now I will also be thinking of rugelach.
Rugelach is a Jewish pastry, filled with sweet fillings and rolled into a crescent shape. Rugelach is traditionally eaten during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
My good friend Suzi passed along this recipe. I’ll admit that I had never eaten rugelach before trying this recipe. Now I’ll never look back. This recipe is absolutely delicious. The dough is so tender and light, and the filling possibilities are endless.
