Rugelach is delicious no matter what holiday it is! We suggest you sweeten up your Thanksgiving with this delicious treat.
What You Need: For the Cream Cheese Dough
- 1 package of cream cheese (8 ounce)
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 2½ cups flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
What You Need: For the Chocolate Filling
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- ½ cup sugar
- 6 ounce bittersweet chocolate, small pieces or shavings
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
What You Do
- Remove dough from refrigerator and cut into 4 pieces. Place 3 pieces back in refrigerator. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Place the small ball of dough on a floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll into a circle ⅛ inch thick (it will loosen as it comes to room temperature).
- Brush rolled out dough with ¼ of the melted butter and sprinkle with ¼ of the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Sprinkle ¼ of the chocolate onto the dough, pressing it lightly into dough.
- Cut dough into 12 wedges. Roll each wedge up, starting from the thickest end, to form crescent.
- Repeat the rolling, topping and shaping with the other 3 pieces of dough.
- Place rugelach on parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Bake in a 350° oven for 18 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to cooling rack and let cool completely.
