    i love prunes but rugelach is also awesome with any type of yummy jam in place of the prune mixture. chopped nuts are great instead of the breadcrumbs. i've even used mini chocolate chips as a filling

    Sounds like you add the breadcrumbs(with the 1/2 cup sugar already previously added) and the other 1/2 cup sugar to the prune filling here in step 5. That's how I would take it. They just fail to say the breadcrumb/sugar mixture from step 2.

    I agree Phyllis, there seems to be 1/2 cup of sugar missing somewhere... You start with 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons. Step 2 says to use 1/2 cup with the breadcrumbs, and the 3 TBSP with the cinnamon. There's no other mention of sugar. Also, I do wish it was indicated that the directions for the filling were at the end, I was a little confused reading step 3. :0)

    Phyllis69, please just read the directions, they are quite clear, just take your time and you will see. I do agree though that some recipes on this site do need redoing and more precise directions. She preaches perfection but doesn't always follow her own advice and her staff needs more perfection goals. Mykele

    Come on, Martha, please make this recipe more clear. Whoever writes your recipes should do a check before they put them into this website. I want to make this but it's too confusing as to the sugar!!!!!!

    To the person asking about the bread crumbs, i think they are used instead of nuts, most rugelachs use nuts, not sure why this recipe doesn't but it looks like that is what they are substituted for

    I make a dozen different kinds of cookies for Christmas and try to add one or two new ones each year - these were the favorite of many of my "cookie judges" this year! And I did put the 1/2 cup of sugar in the dough - because the prune filling has a half cup of sugar mixed in with the breadcrumbs. The dough turned out flaky and the prune filling was great!

    What can I use to substitute the cream cheese, as I am lactose intolerant? This recipe looks great!
