First things first, my hiatus from TWD is over. October was a rough and busy month round these parts. Now that we are into November, I have more time to bake. On to the rugelach. I have made these cookies once before, using Ina Gartens recipe. They came out perfectly, so I had high hopes for this recipe. However, my impatience got the best of me. I didnt let the dough chill long enough, and then totally missed where it said to chill the rolled cookies in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking. (Thanks Jaime!)
In the end, they taste fantastic! They just didnt hold their shape like they should have. Again, I am sure this is baker error, as I didnt exactly follow the directions on the chilling. I used peach jam, walnuts, golden raisins and omitted the chocolate. I will try these again, sticking to the recipe of course.
