Rich. Tender. Fruity.

Sour Cherry Rugelach

1 hour plus chewing and cooling

Rugelach are pastry-like cookies that feature a rich, tender dough wrapped around a dried fruit filling. Our dough is spiced with cardamom and “folded” three times, similar to a puff pastry, to give the baked cookies a delicate flakiness. Additional spices add warm flavor and fragrance to the sweet-tart filling. We preferred the chunky texture of apricot preserves, but smoother-textured apricot jam worked well, too.
