The Technique

Rugelach

Rugelach are quite literally little twists of dough as the name translates most commonly filled with jam or preserves. This popular cream cheese based cookie originates from central to eastern European Jewish communities & are considered to be mainstay bakery offerings in Isreal. Cinnamon-Pecan Rugelach is classified as a rolled cookie more so due to the first shaping & cutting of the dough. The second step gives these classic old world cookies their signature look. A 6-inch springform pan works well as a template for cutting the circles of dough. Use a paring to outline the perimeter of it. Three Essential Rolled Christmas Cookies offers additional information regarding this particular cookie style along with recipes that are ideal to use during the holiday season.

makes about 6 dozen

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
A pinch of kosher salt
3/4 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
4 ounces cold cream cheese, cut into pieces
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup finely ground pecans
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 egg

Pulse the flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, the salt, the butter, the cream cheese & the egg yolks in a food processor several times on Low speed 20 seconds. Blend on Low Speed continuously 20 seconds. The mixture will appear dry & crumbly. Increase the speed to High & blend until the mixture forms a dough, about 20 seconds. Remove the dough from the food processor work bowl & form into a rectangle. Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces & wrap each separately in plastic. Chill 1 hour. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the pecans, 1/2 cup brown sugar & the cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut one portion of dough in half. Roll each piece to a 1/8-inch thickness & cut into 6-inch circles. Sprinkle a bit of the pecan mixture over the surface & press it into the dough. Cut the circle into 6 triangles using a pastry wheel. Roll each triangle towards the center forming a rudimentary crescent shape. Place seam side down on parchment paper-line half sheet pans spacing 1-inch apart. Repeat with the remaining dough reusing the scraps. Beat the egg with a smattering of water using a dinner fork. Brush over the tops of the dough. Sprinkle with a bit of the pecan mixture. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until lightly brown around the cookie edges. Cool completely.
