-In from Daisy, our resident foodie: Rugelach -
During the holiday season, I spend a great deal of time in the kitchen baking all kinds of sweet treats to give as gifts and to take to a Holiday Cookie Exchange. This year, I made rugelach, a traditional Jewish pastry that originated in Eastern Europe.
Rugelach (literally meaning “little twists” in Yiddish) is a cross between a cookie and a pastry. This crescent-shaped cookie is made by rolling a triangular piece of dough around a sweet filling such as preserves, chocolate, dried fruits, nuts, or cinnamon sugar. Rugelach is easy to make and it is a perfect addition to a holiday cookie platter!
