TWD Rugelach



Ciao ! I should have called this post "The Vanished Rugelach" because I couldn't find one left a few hours after they came out of the oven ! Even the kids liked them (I trusted bittersweet chocolate but it didn't work !), maybe even my cats ate them ... they've disappeared !
I made mine with a mixerd berries jam, dark sugar and cinnamon, sultanas, pine nuts and bittersweet chocolate, and eggwash and dark sugar on top.
The recipe was chosen from "Baking from my home to yours" by Dorie Greenspan by Piggy of Piggy's Cooking Journal and it certainly was a good choice ! I never tasted Rugelach before, it is not in the Roman Jewish tradition at all !!! (Roman Jews arrived in Rome from 63 B.C. so we say they are the real romans and of course their cooking isn't either sepharditic nor askenazitic (?) but their own).
To see more wonders please visit any of Tuesdays with Dorie 's blogroll !

Ciao Natalia. I saw this as well at Laws of the Kitchen but again I could not find the recipe. They look great.

Ciao Natalia, your cookies look and must have tasted wonderful, attested by whom ever ate them all with your wonderful choice of filling ingredients... beautifull!! ;-)

Cathy said...

They look beautiful! Oh no, bittersweet chocolate did not ward off the kiddies! That's usually a foolproof way to keep the younger ones away from the baked goods. Well, I agree with you that these were GREAT!! Yours look perfect!

I love the idea of pine nuts in these. Your combination of ingredients really sounds delicious, and wow, they made a hit with everybody!

I don't even know what sultanas are? But they sound delicious. I can't wait to make these and I am so jealous of yours. I want to taste them now! Your ingredients sound wonderful and they look beautiful.

Your rugelach look so pretty. I brought mine to work and they disappeared too!

I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com

Peggy said...

Hey - I meant to ask you. What is the weather like in Italy in the spring? We are planning a trip over there and I do not want to come if it is too cold to sit outside to eat. Thanks for your advice on this!

Marthe said...

Ciao Natalia, mine were also gone pretty fast. I baked in two batches: the second one is still in the kitchen.... Very dangerous to enter the kitchen right now ;)

Vera said...

Aah, it's simple chemistry really. The scrumptious combination of pine nuts and bittersweet chocolate have been known to create such occurences :)

Love your photos!

Your Rugelach turned out pretty well, no wonder they disappeared quickly :).
