    I made a double batch of this dough, then made it up two different times. I did it as called for both times and it was so good. Nice enought to take to a party, but still easy enough to make whenever. They looked so pretty and got lots of great compliments (which I love!) One thing I like about this recipe it that it is delicious as it is, or you can put your own spin on it.

    I love this recipe for rugelach. I made them for Christmas and everybody loved them. (Including myself :). The dough is easier to work with if you refrigerate or freeze for a longer amount of time. Plus use more flour. This is one kind of cookie that you definitely eat because it looks good! I just LOVED the beautiful golden brown tops and the shine from the egg wash.

    I made the recipe twice and although it tastes very good, the dough was difficult to work with and did not hold its shape very well when rolling up the triangles. I would probably not make this recipe again.

    For the first round of dough I made the walnut filling. Very good. For the second round of dough I did crushed Whopper candy (hammer the candy in it's bag) on one half and hershey/cream cheese/graham crackers (in a food processor) for the filling. A very rich cookie that freezes well. I baked on a silicone mat.

    The recipe is's what would jazz these rugelach and make them sparkle: after you have rolled out the dough, spread a thin layer of seedless raspberry or blackberry jam over the circle. Then sprinkle the walnut mixture ....but first! tweak that combo too---add cinnamon to taste and add a generous amount of golden raisins tp this filling. Roll up the rugelach as directed and bake on parchment paper. This version is much more flavorful and will remain fresh in texture.

    This recipe is very easy to make but this is not my favorite. The cookies get dry real fast.
