Print this Recipe    Rugelach

1 pkg dry yeast
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup butter
2 tsp cinnamon
3 egg yolks
1 cup sour cream

Sprinkle the yeast over the flour. Add softened butter and blend.
Stir egg yolks into the sour cream and add to the flour mixture.
Form into a ball, wrap in foil, and refrigerate over night.

Combine the sugar, chopped walnuts, and cinnamon.

Divide the dough into 4 balls. Spread the sugar mixture on a board.
Roll 1/4 of the dough into a 10 to 12 inch round, coating both sides
well with the sugar mixture. Cut the rolled dough into 16 wedges.
Roll up from the wide end first. Bake on a cookie sheet in a 325
degree oven for 30 minutes.

My favorite variant: Place two or three raisins at the wide end of
each wedge before rolling. I also dip each rollup in the sugar
mixture before I place it on the cookie sheet.


Blend 2 c flour, 8 oz butter (2 sticks) and 8 oz cream cheese.
Chill. Roll out, and fill with honey, cinnamon and nuts or preserves.

dough in 4 parts. Wrap each and put in freezer until cold, about 1/2
hour. Melt remaining 2 oz. butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Heat
oven to 350 deg. Working with 1/4 dough at a time, roll each part into
a 1/8" thick round on a floured surface. Brush with 1 Tbs melted butter.

raisins. Cut round into 16 triangular wedges. Roll each up, starting
