Price to make: $2.94

Yield: 32 pieces

Time: Prep – 45 minutes, Cook – 15-20 minutes or until brown


1/2 cup lukewarm water

1 1/2 Tbsp dry yeast

3 sticks margarine

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg

4 cups flour

pinch of salt

2 tsp vanilla sugar



2/3 cup sugar

2/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup ground walnuts

2 tsp cinnamon

  • Dissolve yeast in water.
  • Cream margarine together with sugar and egg.
  • Mix in rest of ingredients.
  • Divide into 4 parts.
  • Roll out each part and brush with oil.
  • Sprinkle each part with filling.
  • Roll up each part “jelly roll” style beginning with the wider end.
  • Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes or until brown on top.

Tips: When making dough you might need to add a little more flour to get it the right consistency. Once dough is divided into 4 parts roll out each one into a 10 inch circle like a pizza. Brush with oil and then sprinkle filling on top. Press filling into dough so it all doesn’t fall off when you roll it. Cut each circle into 8 equal pieces like a pizza. Roll it starting from the wider end, put it on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake until light brown on top. These are old school rugelach not like the ones your thinking of from the store.
