Rugelach After Hanukkah

December 21, 2017

Lemme start out by saying I actually made these rugelach on the 7th and 8th nights of Hanukkah but since I'm slow to post, I'm only now writing about these Hanukkah treats a day too late.
Rugelach are flaky, filled, mini croissant-looking pastries that are typically served during Hanukkah but can be enjoyed any time of year. Since I grew up in large Jewish community, I was no stranger to these sweet treats. But since it's been a couple decades since I've had rugelach, I decided to bake some during this holiday season.
Typical fillings include a fruit jam, nuts and chocolate. But I decided to bake two different kinds:  sweet and savory. Both are so delicious but if you had to make me choose which was my favorite, the non-sweets lover in me will obviously say the savory one. Plus it includes everything bagel seasoning!
These are pretty easy to make---you just have to be patient with some chilling times but with the waiting time, you can wrap presents, drink some egg nog or watch some old holiday tv specials.
