TWD - Friendship Cookies

 This week’s Tuesday with Dorie (Dorie’s Cookies) recipe is Friendship Cookies - actually rugelach. Dorie renamed them as she is never quote sure how to pronounce the name.

I have made rugelach a number of times while baking through Dorie’s books, and my conclusion is that I suck at making these. In fact, this batch of rugelach is my ugliest yet.

However, despite their appearance, these cookies are delicious - a cream cheese dough encasing fruit, nuts and chocolate, with a layer of jam to stick the filling on. How can you go wrong!

I used marmalade and cranberries with pecan nuts and chocolate in the filling.

Like a Picnic chocolate bar, these cookies are “deliciously ugly”.

To see what everyone else made this week and their verdict, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.


  1. I bet they're delicious! Yours look really good to me; mine were a disaster, I suck at making them for sure and probably will buy them at the bakery from now on...

  2. I love deliciously ugly food! These look very tasty.

  3. ha- this made me laugh! i didn't do the best job forming them either, but all that matters is that they are delicious!

  4. These ARE hard to assemble! But I love deliciously ugly food too!
