If chocolate has ever been paired with better flavors than this, I've yet to experience it. This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was picked by Piggy’s Cooking Journal , selecting Rugelach which can be varied to suit the maker's taste.
The dough is made in a food processor, and comes together easily. It's just cream cheese, butter, flour, and salt processed until it gets a curd-like texture. The filling is raspberry preserves (delicious, but the pesky seeds keep sticking in my teeth), golden raisins, walnuts, cinnamon sugar, and bittersweet chocolate. The chocolate spilled all over the place while baking, but it didn't hurt the flavor. I opted to skip the glaze because by the time I was ready to bake, it was midnight and I was getting tired (late bowling night).
Make sure you get out and vote today, people! No excuses.
