I felt like baking today, so I flipped through my cookbook and decided on Rugelach cookies*.
It was a very fun and easy recipe. Basically I just made a simple dough (no eggs in it, which I appreciated, because I don't like eggs) briefly chilled it and then rolled it out into two rounds and covered it in filling. In this case the filling was apricot jam, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon sugar. A variation was also included for chocolate-raspberry Rugelach (I may have try that one someday!).
I was surprised at how fast these were to make, I'll be keeping them in mind for last minute baking.
I liked the way they turned out too, but because I was almost out of jam the filling was a bit skimpy.
Next baking blog will probably be cake (though I make no promises). I've been having wild fantasies of a four-layer birthday cake and I'm considering either a white cake with lemon filling or a devil's food & cherry cake. I think my birthday will be a good excuse to indulge. ;)
