have on hand.

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.

Roll up each triangle starting at short end to opposite point; place point-side-down, 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Brush with beaten egg.

Expert Tips

To toast pecans, heat oven to 350°F. Spread nuts in an even layer in ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown.

Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into triangles.

For best results, bake cookies one sheet at a time on the center oven rack.

For a variation, omit powdered sugar, brush rugelach with beaten egg and sprinkle with white sparkling sugar before baking. Sparkling sugar can be found in the baking aisle at the grocery store.

Store cookies in an airtight container in single layers between parchment or waxed paper in refrigerator up to 2 days. Cookies can be frozen up to 2 months. To thaw, let stand uncovered at room temperature 1 to 2 hours.
