Rugelach Cookies

The Christmas season is in full swing and our oven has been busy cranking out tray after tray of delectable sugar-filled Christmas delights !

And a new addition to the Christmas cookie line-up… Rugelach!

I still remember the first time I tried Rugelach cookies – it was at work, one of our coworkers brought in a white box filled with these small croissant-shaped cookies. They were absolutely delicious… crispier than a croissant, yet still flakey and rolled up with a sweet cinnamon and nut filling.

Going to be honest, they look pretty impressive, but they are really easy to make. I followed this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction – didn’t change a thing and I found her instructions and tips to be very helpful, especially because it was my first time making these cookies!

And of course, Christmas baking wouldn’t be complete without the classic Ginger Molasses (recipe) and Cranberry Orange Shortbread cookies (recipe).

And now, time for some picture talk… we recently got a new camera and I’ve been itching to test it out (that is half of the reason why I went on a huge baking spree… to do the photoshoot!) Verdict… I quite like the photo quality of it! Plus its super small, compact and so light compared to my brother’s SLR that I used to use. It’s still a work in progress and we’ll probably have to spend more time learning how to properly use it… which will mean more baking, cooking and photo-shooting… but for now… I’m just going to stare at these pretty cookie pictures… and hope you’ll all try to make Rugulach cookies this holiday season!

Wishing you all a Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
