As Adam Sandler so memorably sang “Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights. Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights!” Just in time for Hanukkah, our friend Chen used our versatile Pizza Crust Baking Mix to create a gluten-free, vegan and allergy-friendly rugelach recipe that nearly everyone can enjoy!
Walking through bakeries, delis, cafes and grocery stores in the New York City metro area, where Partake was founded, rugelach (pronounced rugh-uh-lach) can be found any time of year. One taste and you’ll know why! Typically made with cream cheese, cinnamon and sugar, and often made with fruits and nuts or nut pastes, these crescent-shaped pastries that dub as cookies, are the ideal anytime pick-me-up. Pairing so well with a cup of coffee or tea, set these sweet treats out for dessert when you and your guests “Can’t eat another bite.” and see them disappear one-by-one. There’s something about the perfect marrying of the yeast dough with cinnamon and sugar that is light enough for the end of a big meal while being sweet enough to satisfy.
