In the Kitchen ~ Quick and Easy Rugelach ~ 4/16/15

I was intrigued with the "Rugelach", so I looked it up.  Click here for some background.

I took the quick and easy route and used crescent rolls instead of make the homemade dough.  Not that I'm afraid of making homemade dough.  I just didn't have the time or inclination.  lol

Even made the quick way, these were delicious.  And so easy to make!


2 tubes Crescent Rolls
2/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 egg beaten
1 teaspoon water
2 Tablespoon sugar (Course if you have it)

Heat oven to 350.

Lay out a large piece of wax paper on your counter.  Unroll all the crescent rolls.

Spread a layer of raspberry jam on each roll.

Mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over jam.

Sprinkle chocolate chips and pecans over each roll.

Roll the crescent up trying to keep the filling in as much as possible.

In a small bowl, beat the egg and add 1 teaspoon of water.  Brush over each roll.

Sprinkle sugar on top.

Cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Carefully transer each pastry on to the cookie sheet.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until the turn golden.

Let sit for 2 minutes then trasnfer to a wire rack.

If you try one hot out of the oven, be care of the hot jam and melted chocolate!

Share with family and friends.

There are many combinations that you could fill these pastries with.  Let me know if you try them out.  Would you go the quick and easy route or the try out the homemade dough?

I'd love to return the visit!  Please leave a comment and a link!,

P.S.  This is a recipe from the archives.
