    Making traditional Chanukah treats can be a bit time-consuming but very rewarding. These are the goodies my family waits in eager anticipation for each year, Rugelach cookies and cranberry kugel. Let me tell you how to make them for your family to enjoy.

     

    Rugelach Recipe

    2 1/4 cups flour

    Rugelach Cookies http://ourfairfieldhomeandgarden.com/chanukah-recipes-to-die-for/

    Rugelach Cookies

    1 cup butter

    1 (8oz.) package of cream cheese

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Filling : ground nuts, assorted jams, sugar & cinnamon mixture

    Directions

     Blend softened butter and cream cheese with the flour and salt into a dough by hand. Divide the dough into 8 portions, shape into balls and flatten. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

    Roll each portion on a lightly floured surface into an 8 inch circle (as you would a pie crust)

    Spread lightly with jam, sprinkle on chopped nuts (optional) and cinnamon sugar mixture

    Cut into 16 pie shaped wedge pieces and roll each up from the pointed end outward and place open end down onto a parchment lined cookie sheet

    Brush the top of each cookie with an eggwash or milk and sprinkle with more of the cinnamon sugar mixture

    Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown (makes approximately 9 dozen)
