This week's TWD recipe is Rugelach, a cookie I had never made before and was excited to try. Wikipedia tells us this is a Jewish pastry of ashkenazi origin-I think of it as something someone's grandma makes, just not mine. Now Dorie's recipe has all sorts of crazy stuff in it- jam, nuts, currants, chocolate- I saw it and I thought, too much going on there!!
I had recieved some apple butter from Andrea of Nummy Kitchen, my Blogging By Mail buddy, and I knew I wanted to put it in this recipe. So a very fall flavored cookie developed- Apple Butter, Cinnamon Sugar, and Pecans, wrapped up in the flaky cream cheese dough. Absolutely Heavenly.
