My wonderful daughter-in-law, Reizy, told me about this rugela dough a while ago, but somehow I never got around to testing it. When Chanie suggested offering bake-aheads for the upcoming Yamim Tovim, I decided that now’s the time! I’m so happy I tried it: the soft dough comes together in literally minutes, all you need is a pot and spoon, and they taste really good too! Use the suggested fillings below or your family’s favorites — b’tei’avon!

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Rugelach

Yields 48 rugelach

  1. In a medium-sized pot, heat water and oil until beginning to boil. Remove from heat and add sugars to pot.

  2. Combine flour and baking powder and add to pot, stirring with a spoon until the ingredients are well combined and the dough comes together. Set aside to cool a bit.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).

  4. Divide dough into four equal parts. Working with one part of dough, roll out thinly into a circle. Spread with filling of choice and cut into 12 even triangles (pizza-slice style). Roll up each triangle, beginning from wider end, and place on Gefen Easy Baking Parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.

  5. Bake for 30 minutes, or until just beginning to brown at edges. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Note:

For larger rugelach, cut each circle into eight triangles and bake for a few minutes longer.

    Amazing

    I tried these with milk instead of water, and it came out really good. I also found it easier to thin the dough a little, cut it into triangles, and then thin out each piece individually again. Nice that it doesn't have margarine and eggs.

    Simple filling

    Can I do a simple cinnamon sugar filling (or cocoa sugar) ? My kids aren't into jelly filling

    sure, you can do whatever filling you like. If you decide to do cinnamon sugar or cocoa and sugar, I would mix them with butter or margarine so you can spread it onto the dough and it will stick.

    Overnight the dough

    Can I put the dough in the fridge overnight or it needs to be used fresh?

    Yes, but I wouldn't keep it there for more than 2 nights.

    FIVE STARS!

    The dough was so easy to roll. Was flaky and delicious! I mixed 1/2 cup brown sugar, 3 Tab. cinnamon and about 1 Tab. oil and spread it on the dough. A real hit!
