Nutella-rugaliki recipe -rugelach recipe

These rugelach cookies also referred to rogaliki are filled with a nutella (hazelnut) chocolate spread that works wonderfully for baking. A big thanks to my aunt who shared this rugelach recipe with me. Nutella holds up so well during baking so don’t be intimidated by the idea. And of coarse feel free to use other well-known fillings of your choice.

(I believe flakiness has a lot to do with chilling the dough so please try to keep the dough as chill as possible before baking.) 

7. Preheat the oven to 385 degrees F and bake for 22-25 minutes or until lightly golden.

8. Dredge warm cookies into powdered sugar and enjoy.

    How nice and easy recipe it is I have question please why we refregreat the pastire until we baking it all?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      You could try skipping that step but refrigeration may have been a step for easier handling and perhaps prevention from sticking as much.

    Can’t wait to try making them! Love rogaliki. What size was your butter sticks? 8tbs? Thank you

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      My butter sticks were 8 tbsp each. I sometimes microwave my butter to get them soft but you need to keep an eye on them (literally check them every 15 sec so they don’t melt.) Let me know how they turn out:)
