Okay, besides biscotti, I was most excited to try this recipe! Why? Well because my husband is a self proclaimed chocaholic and nearly everything I bake will include some form of chocolate. Needless to say, Rugelach would have been very low on my baking list had it not been for TWD.
I had to read other people's comments and got some fabulous suggestions, so I made two batches, with two different flavors.
Batch #1 consisted of strawberry jam (all I had on hand), chocolate chips and pecans.
Batch #2 consisted of Nutella, dried cranberries and pecans.
Impressions: Batch #2 with the Nutella was excellent. I'd want to try it with dried cherries and almonds next time. My oldest daughter preferred batch #1. I really enjoyed them and would like to try them again with apricot jam, golden raisins and almonds.
They were easy to make and we'll definitely be making them again, they were super easy!!
BATCH #2 - I cut first and then spread on the filling.
