Of course when one thinks Rosh Hashanah pastry the first thought that comes to mind is RUGELACH! Well, if you lived in my house and grew up inheriting the “dreaded honey cake” syndrome, you too would understand my immediate tastebuds preserving word association. Instead, I chose to redefine “Rosh Hashanah Honey Dessert” for my daughter and have introduced her to the indulgent joys that are these honey liquor soaked, apple butter shmeared date and golden raisin stuffed rugelachs. Believe me when I say, one bite of these and you will be making these little gems year round.
