“I took a rugelach recipe and invented my own filling with cream cheese instead of fruit spread. It came out so tasty I had to share it!” - by Kasey
Original recipe yields 32 rugelach
- Beat the margarine and 1 package of cream cheese with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Mix in the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, and vanilla. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Mix 1 package of cream cheese with the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, cinnamon, hot chocolate mix, and chocolate chips. Set aside.
- Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- Divide dough into four equal portions. Roll each portion of dough into a 10 to 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Spread a thin layer of the chocolate filling on each circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Roll each wedge, starting with the wide end. Place the cookie point-side down on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

"I followed this recipe exactly like it was written just today and after tasting one, I'll say it deserves 5 starts. They were easy to make and well worth trying. The only thing I did extra was to sp..." See morerinkle some powdered sugar over them. Thanks for a new Christmas cookie."
"Just finished baking a batch. They turned out so good I had to post a pic. We changed the way they were rolled after first round of dough. Top in pick is half of the cresent shape, they were to large...." See more The last 3 I rolled in a rectangle and made a log,which I sliced (much easier for my 4 yr old). We then baked some slices standing up & some flat. The filling is delicious."
