Deli Classics: Rugelach

Pronunciation Guide: roo-geh-luh

Rugelach are bite-size, sugary pastries usually filled with chocolate. They’re crisp and flaky on the outside, and moist, tender and chewy on the inside – kind of like a croissant.

The name comes from Yiddish (the Jewish language of Eastern Europe) and has a root that means “twist” – a reference to its shape. Some people say that the root word is “rugel” – which means royal in Yiddish – perhaps symbolizing the savory taste.

Enjoy our homemade rugelach in both chocolate and cinnamon nut flavors!
