Rugelach

December 4, 2014, 12:00 am


Makes 32 cookies

2 sticks butter, room temperature
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup natural cane sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

Eggwash:
1 egg
1 teaspoon cold water
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar     

  1. Beat the butter and cream cheese in a standing mixer using the paddle attachment until combined. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until fluffy. Add flour and mix on low speed, scraping down bowl once. Gather the dough into a ball and knead slightly until  smooth.
  2. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces, shape each into a ball, then flatten each ball slightly into thick disks. Wrap discs in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or longer. To make eggwash, whisk the egg and water together in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough into an 8-inch circle. (Work with one ball at a time and keep the other discs refrigerated.) Spread with fillings.
  4. Use a sharp knife or a pizza wheel to cut the circle into 8 equal wedges. Starting at the wide (outside) edge of each wedge, roll it toward its point. Place the rolled wedges, tip down, on the prepared baking sheets. Curve each cookie into a crescent shape. Repeat this process with the remaining dough. Brush eggwash over each rugelach and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar. Bake at 350 for about 22 minutes until they are puffed and golden. Transfer to racks to cool.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 while making the filling of your choice. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
