I was so happy to see that this was a choice early on in the book. I had made this recipe in December and fell in love with it. I have eaten rugelach since I was a child. My mother made it with yeast dough, brown butter, raisins, cinnamon/sugar and walnuts. I have made it yearly with my friend Cynthia and have tried various fillings. This year I was reading the 12 days of cookies in the blog Lottie and Doof and there was this rugelach recipe. To say I was excited is an understatement.I made the prune lekvar and was ready to go. This time around I bought the lekvar at the cooking store to do a comparison. I had a little trouble with my first rectangle, it was too thin in some places and was difficult to roll up. For the second rectangle I cut it in half, this made it significantly easier to manage. I also made half of what was recommended  in the recipe for the filling.( Last time i had way too much)

This is a time filled process but so worth it!! I also had some difficulty first time around with the cookies unrolling in the baking process. This time I sealed them with extra egg wash and had much better results. These look like little buns and they taste FANTASTIC. This is a recipe I will make over and over again. Thanks for choosing it!!
