So it may seem our blog is a little obsessed with food, but it is the holidays, so you'll have to forgive us. As promised, here is another one of my favorite recipes. This is the rugelach I have been making since Hebrew school. In fact the recipe is still on a "ditto" sheet that is torn, stained, and fading.
Enjoy and have a sweet new year. We will be back in the office and back on the blog on Thursday.
2 cups flour
1/2 lb. butter (2 sticks)
1/2 lb cream cheese
2 T cinnamon
6 T sugar
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Combine flour, butter and cream cheese in a bowl until they form a dough you can pick up in a ball. Refrigerate overnight, or at least a couple of hours.
Roll out the dough on floured surface with floured rolling pin.
Mix cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
Cut dough into triangular wedges like a pizza. Sprinkle cinnamon mixture on each wedge, top with walnuts, raisins, and chocolate. Roll up into a crescent shape starting with the wide side of triangle.
Top each roll with more cinnamon mixture. Bake at preheated 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
