Expert Tips

  • You can make rugelach ahead of time. Make as directed and freeze up to 2 months in airtight container. When ready to serve, just reheat in 200ºF oven about 30 minutes.
  • If you don’t have time to make your own dough, you can use refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or frozen, thawed puff pastry sheets instead; be sure to follow the package directions for oven temperature and bake time.
