Simple to make and delicious. The dough is tender and flaky (like a pie crust). I made 1/3rd of the dough with some mango and peach jam, although I filled it up too much and ended up baking out of it! It also lost its delicate texture--if I fill it with jam again I will add much less. The cinnamon, sugar and nut mixture is fabulous. Thanks for sharing this. My husband said this was great!
I was so impressed, this is delicious and LOOKS so good, and yet it really was very simple to prepare!! I am NOT a good baker, but every now and then I want to try.. well, this was an outstanding success! What we also liked was that they are not overly sweet, none of us care for really sweet stuff, this is a sweet pastry, without being cloying. When I rolled the second two lots of dough, an increasing amount of 'cinnamon-sugar' was being rolled into the dough from the previous circles, and that was actually really nice, added a sparkle to the finished product and a nice little crunch. I used brown sugar, incidentally. I'll definitely be making these again, I want to make them for guests and serve them when I serve dessert, I'll have to make LOTS and I know that no one will believe I actually made them myself! :D Thanks, CGM ! Oh, the photo is a bit blurry, sorry, but they are soooo goood!
This isn't the traditional cream cheese dough..it's SO much better. I devised a recipe using a sourcream pastry that is identical to this last Christmas. I was so much more satisfied with the outcome. It's flakey and light almost like pie crust, but richer. I grind the walnuts with the cinnamon and sugar for the filling. This is excellent Rugelach.
Wow, this is FIVE STAR COOKIE COMFORT FOOD at its best. For those of you who always hoped there was leftover pie dough so Mom would make a cinnamon roll, this recipe is for you. A light, flaky pastry, these cookies are absolutely delicious and absolutely gorgeous. They are also very easy to make. Thank you ColorGuardMom for an over-the-top keeper!
