Notes

Photograph and comments courtesy of Laurel Wickberg Bailey: "A half recipe made 30 cookies. They don't look the way Grandma's used to, her's seemed to have more dough, less filling but I followed the recipe to a T (other than halving it) and they're delicious!"

Rolled cookies are also called Rugelach (רוגעלך).

Rugelach is a traditional Jewish food eaten any time of the year (including Shabbat and Hannuakah).

This version is kosher as it does not use milk or butter.
