Rugelach are my favorite cookie. I made them last year and couldn’t find the recipe for the life of me. So, when in doubt, use Smitten Kitchen’s. They turned out perfectly. When made correctly (::wink::), rugelach have everything you need in a cookie — dough that’s buttery and a little salty, cinnamon and sugar inside AND out, sticky and sweet jam, crunchy nuts and, of course, chocolate. And somehow they work just as well for breakfast as they do for dessert! It’s a miracle, really.
