Easy Rugelach Recipe

L'Shanah Tovah everyone!  Here is an easy "fridge to table" recipe for Rugelach.  

1 box of Pillsbury Ready Made Pie Crusts OR any good ready made pastry/pie dough.  I hear French Picnic brand from Whole Foods is amazing but could not find any so I used Pillsbury which was just fine even with the lard and trans fats and whatnot.
1/2 jar of good quality berry preserves (do not use jam, use whole fruit preserves)
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup sugar + 1T cinnamon (mixed together)
  • Put cinnamon & sugar mixture on a clean work surface/cutting board and spread it around
  • Unroll the pie crust and lay it flat on top of the sugared work surface
  • Roll the pie crust out until it's in a rectangular shape
  • Spread the fruit preserves all over the crust
  • Sprinkle the walnuts all over 
  • Sprinkle a little more cinnamon/sugar mixture
  • Add some raisins or currants if you want to 
  • Roll up the pie crust into a log
  • Trim off the uneaven ends
  • With a serrated knife, cut the log crosswise into 1 inch wide Rugelach 
  • Place cookies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet 
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes
