This week on Tuesdays with Dorie
we are making rugelach and not just any rugelach but the rugelach that won over France from Baking Chez Moi
(page 301). After reading the discussion thread
on the website I decided to make a few adjustments before baking. I made the dough and chilled it in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Then I decided to make the circle version in Dorie’s other book, Baking From My Home To Yours
(page 150) it is easier for me to roll a circle than a square. I used a pizza cutter like Dorie suggested for cutting my tirangles, rolled them up and refrigerated again for 30 minutes before baking at 350 degrees.
I tried to chop my ingredients fine and I pushed them in using a sheet of wax paper.
I cooked mine on parchment paper with the seam side down. I found quite a lot of oozing and thought I had ruined them but alas they came out perfect and not burned.
These cookies won over my house too. My husband and I happen to love chocolate, coconut and pecans, my son not so much. As my husband says, “more for me”. Next time I would make less filling, it made too much and I have leftover.
Tuesdays With Dorie
