This Rugelach recipe was inspired by the delicious rolled up pastries sold at Costco. These cookies are filled with a chocolate and jam/cream cheese filling.

I love how this flaky dough resembled Costco’s version. If you’ve never tried these pastries you should give these a try as they are not overly sweet but yet have a subtle sweet filling. Try both the jam and chocolate variation to see which version you prefer but the chocolate one (or so called the nutella-filled ones) is my favorite. Nutella actually makes a fabulous chocolate filling that doesn’t tend to leak and it is a chocolate hazelnut spread which is close enough in taste to the Costco’s version. Give these a try!
