Rugelah




Meet my new favorite sweet! It is the Jewish pastry Rugelah. I had never heard of it before, but happened to pass it in the grocery store bakery. They are made of pastry layers, and I understand they can be filled with many things, like cream cheese. The ones I saw happened to be chocolate. They are soft, maybe five inches. I tried one this morning and it was very good, not too sweet. I would love to try another filling. I am guessing this is the only time of year they are sold. Yum!

“It’s not smart to stuff yourself with sweets, nor is glory piled on glory good for you.”

Oh, these look good! I hadn't heard of them before now. Love the scripture and I don't know why I haven't remembered reading it as I've read Proverbs many times. I think I should put this one up in my kitchen somewhere! lol!

A friend of mine in Alaska used to make something that looked a lot like those. She filled hers with cream cheese. I didn't remember what they were called until I saw your post Ginny. They were delicious.

Dear Ginny, I hope all is well. I am sorry for being behind in visiting.
I enjoyed these sweets as a girl. A friend of my grandmothers taught her how to make these treats and my grandmother made them all of the time. She made them with a variety of fillings and yes, they were delicious. I have tried, but they are not like my grandmothers.
