Freebase

  1. Rugelach

    Rugelach, other spellings: rugelakh, rugulach, rugalach, ruggalach, rogelach, rugalah, rugala, is a Jewish pastry of Ashkenazic origin. A more probable origin is that of its eastern European traditional pastry counterpart called Cornulete. Traditional rugelach are made in the form of a crescent by rolling a triangle of dough around a filling. Some sources state that the rugelach and the French croissant share a common Viennese ancestor, crescent-shaped pastries commemorating the lifting of the Turkish siege, possibly a reference to the Battle of Vienna in 1683. This appears to be an urban legend however, as both the rugelach and its supposed ancestor pre-date the Early Modern era, and the croissant in its modern form did not originate earlier than the 19th century. An alternative form is constructed much like a strudel or nut roll, but unlike those, the rolled dough and filling is cut into slices before baking.
