Rugelach is a crescent-shaped cookie that is typically made with a cream cheese-based dough and filled with a variety of sweet toppings. These cookies can be made with a variety of different fillings, but some of the most popular options include chocolate, nuts, and jam.


Cookie Dough:

1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour


A 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup raspberry jam


  1. Cream the cream cheese, butter, sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the flour to the mixture and mix until well blended.
  3. Divide the dough into three equal parts.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a 12-inch circle.
  5. Spread the filling of your choice over the dough circles.
  6. Cut each circle into 12 wedges.
  7. Roll each wedge, starting at the wide end, until it forms a crescent shape.
  8. Place the cookies on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
