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”.
