The Rugelach That Won Over France is a spiral of cinnamon sugar, coconut, pecans, chocolate and dried cherries. I’ve made other Dorie rugelach once, no twice, before…in fact, hers is the only rugelach I’ve ever made. She uses essentially the same cream cheese pastry dough in each, and it’s great. It’s easy to make in the food processor, pretty easy to roll out and bakes up nice and flaky. But, while this version may have won over France, it wasn’t my favorite flavor combination. I thought it was a little dry compared to the other two, and I realize the difference is likely because they had some sort of jam in the filling and this one didn’t. I’d certainly give this a shot again, but would swap out the chocolate for some fruit jam.
I followed the recipe here, but instead of freezing my rolled up rugelach logs before slicing, I just chilled them in the fridge for a couple of hours. Then I cut them an inch thick, rather than 1/2-inch thick, for chunkier cookies.
