    These take a little bit of preparation time but are not at all hard to make. Cottage cheese makes these delightful little pastries light and tasty.

    Serves: 48 

    • 1 cup cottage cheese
    • 250g butter, softened
    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 65g butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup (125g) brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
    • 1/2 cup sultanas
    • 3 tablespoons orange marmalade
    • 1 egg white
    • 2 tablespoons water

    Preparation:50min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:2hours chilling  ›  Ready in:3hours10min 

    1. Combine cottage cheese and 250g butter in a bowl. Mix thoroughly, then gradually stir in the flour. Dough will be sticky. Divide dough into thirds and wrap with waxed paper. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
    2. Preheat an oven to 200C. Lightly grease a baking tray.
    3. Combine the remaining 65g butter with the brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans and raisins. Set aside. Roll one ball of dough at a time into a 20cm circle on a floured surface, while keeping the remaining dough chilled. Spread 1 tablespoon of the orange marmalade over the circle. Gently press 1/3 of the nut mixture into the dough. Cut the circle into 16 equal wedges. Roll each wedge tightly, starting with the wide end. Place the rugelach point-side down on the prepared baking tray. Repeat with the remaining dough. Beat the egg white with the water in a small bowl, then brush the mixture onto each rugelach.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

    Absolutely incredible! Takes a little time but wow! So worth the results. I took it to a party and it was the hit. 4 people asked for the recipe. Its definitelymy new favorite and a keeper for the recipe box. Enjoy. You won't be disappointed.  -  27 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made these for a party and there was an empty plate by the end. Everyone loved these and I wish I had doubled the recipe. Unbelievable easy to make and delicous and they freeze very well. The only change I would make would be to add a little more filling to each rugelach. This recipe is definitely a keeper.....and I passed it along to all those who were at the party.  -  17 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was afraid these were going to be too sweet, but they were perfect!! I make the recipe exactly as written but without the orange marmalade. These are more like a pastry than a cookie. My daughter who normally doesn't like nuts or raisins loved them!! She suggested I try making them using chocolate chips...This might work with chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts...hummm??? Thank you for a great recipe, Sandy!!  -  09 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
