Rugelach, meaning little twists in Yiddish, is a traditional Eastern European dessert. Jewish in origin, rugelach was primarily served at the time of Hanukkah. There are two styles of rugelach, the first is crescent-shaped, some say relative to the French croissant. The second is “cut” in the style of rolled strudel.
Our rugelach is cut, each end resembling pinwheels. We begin with a sheet of dough covered with one of our four traditional jams or spreads sprinkled with walnuts, cinnamon and sugar. Rolled tightly by hand, each sixteen inch roll is cut into approximately one ounce little beauties.
