Easy Rugelach

Updated: Dec 12, 2020




A Rugelach is a filled pastry product originating in the Jewish communities of Poland. The crescent-shape filled pastry was originally made with yeast dough and filled with fruit jams, poppy seed paste or nuts.


The Rugelach we made here is a delicious sweet rugelach with pecans and apricot.
