The Rugelach That Won Over France

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we are making rugelach and not just any rugelach but the rugelach that won over France from Baking Chez Moi (page 301).  After reading the discussion thread on the website I decided to make a few adjustments before baking.  I made the dough and chilled it in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Then I decided to make the circle version in Dorie's other book, Baking From My Home To Yours (page 150) it is easier for me to roll a circle than a square. I used a pizza cutter like Dorie suggested for cutting my tirangles, rolled them up and refrigerated again for 30 minutes before baking at 350 degrees. 

I tried to chop my ingredients fine and I pushed them in using a sheet of wax paper.

I cooked mine on parchment paper with the seam side down.  I found quite a lot of oozing and thought I had ruined them but alas they came out perfect and not burned.

These cookies won over my house too.  My husband and I happen to love chocolate, coconut and pecans, my son not so much.  As my husband says, "more for me".  Next time I would make less filling, it made too much and I have leftover.  

Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan.  To see what others did in this group go here.

  1. The cookies look great...I prefer the crescent shapes as well but decided this week I would try the version she had in this book. It was nice, and I'm glad I tried it, but nothing says Rugelach to me like those little crescent shapes! :-)

  2. Yes, these cookies were good. I found the crescent method from TWD harder so kudos to you.

  6. Your rugelach look great. I loved these because after making them once I can make them with all different kinds of filling although my husband liked them just the way they were.

  8. They really look good, love the crescent shape. I think when I redo these I will try
    it that way, maybe have better luck that way.

  9. I did half a batch of filling and the regular portion of dough and it was just right! The crescents look pretty. I know I'll make these again, and will likely roll those triangles.
