TWD Rugelach


Well this is my very first Tuesday's With Dorie post. I had been wanting to join for quite a while but I did not own the book.
Until Ross.
$9.99.
Yep, you read that right. It was like manna from heaven. As soon as I saw it on the shelf it was in my greedy little hands before I even took a second breath. Thank you discount store with all your poorly behaved shoppers and their children running down aisles practically knocking everyone into the tacky displays and your stuff all over the floor instead of on the shelf like most stores. Yes, thank you. It was worth 17 minutes in line. No need for hello or thank you. Nope, the book is mine, all mine, ha ha ha ha ha ha. Yes, a store like that can put you over the edge. But the book is still mine.

I love good Rugelach and the best I have had were at Irvine Ranch Market in Costa Mesa and not even close to cheap. But now that I know how to make them, watch out. The cream cheese dough was very simple to make in the food processor. And fillings of jam, nuts and chocolate...yeah well just try to stop me. I chose to go with strawberry, chocolate and almond filling. These were easy and very good and adaptable. I will make these many more times, and they will get prettier. This was a nice recipe for my first TWD, so to Grace at Piggy's Cooking Journal I send a heartfelt 'thank you' for making this a pleasure. You can see all the other bakers and their creations at the blogroll also.
