Classic rugelach has nuts, jam & dark chocolate. In mine I used fresh raspberries, white chocolate & coconut in the filling. I was asked to use raspberries in the filling, which was great because I love them!

      I tell ya what Averie, you certainly earn eating it when you bake it from scratch. Rolling dough burns calories, right? Thanks for the pin LOVE too! xoxo

    Until this moment I’d never thought of rugelach as dessert pigs in a blanket, but for some reason I just realized it. OMG. Can we have a party where we only have little rolled treats? Pigs in a blanket, rugelach, mini cinnamon rolls…I’m on a roll!

      OMG!! Yes, of course we can. I love that idea more than anything. These & Pigs in Blankets would make the ultimate holiday party. Now what would the cocktail be 😉
