Tuesday with Dorie - Rugelach
I want to say thank you to Grace of Piggy's Cooking Journal. She chose Rugelach for the recipe this week. I have never made these and thought that they would be very hard, but they were not. Which is not to say that I did not have any problems. Time is an issue, there are 2 sets of resting times and the dough did not play nice with me.
The picture on the left was the first half of the dough. When I rolled the dough out it stuck to the waxed paper. So I put it back into the fridge and then tried to roll the crescent shapes when the dough was cold. Breakage occurred. So the second half I made them into pinwheels and then chilled the dough in the freezer for an hour. This made it much easier to cut and I got more cookies out of the dough.
I used rehydrated apricots, cinnamon, sugar and mini chocolate chips for the filling. The dough was very light and buttery. For more Rugelach fun check out Tuesday with Dorie.
