the easy to handle Cream cheese dough,crescent shaped rugelach are a
delight to prepare at Home.these are tender,flaky and not too sweet.you can
make them ahead And freeze them before or after baking.

Handling of dough taken from barb day's recipe roll out a portion of the
dough in a circle about 1/16" thick. With a knife or pastry wheel, cut the
pastry into 16 pie-shaped wedges. If the dough is sticky, dust it with a
little flour. Sprinkle or spread the filling on the wedge. Beginning at the
wide edge, roll the dough up toward the point. Place on an ungreased cookie
sheet and carefully sprinkle with a tiny bit of the reserved sugar. Repeat
with the remaining dough and filling. Bake 15 to
18 minutes, or until golden Notes: The dough for this cookie will
literally melt in your hands if not worked very quickly, and kept as cold
as possible! I freeze a marble pastry board before I begin to make these
and use a marble pin for rolling the dough. If you do not have this
equipment, ice down the area you aare going to work on. When rolling the
dough, it is wise to place a sheet of waxed paper over the board. If the
dough gets too sticky to work, put it back in the fridge for a while, then
continue. This recipe is basically the recipe in The Jewish Holiday
Kitchen, by Joan Nathan. I have used various flavors of jam or preserves,
