While rugelach are traditionally filled with fruit or jam, you can give a spin to tradition and serve them as a savory finger food before holiday dinner.
You can make rugelach ahead of time. Make as directed and freeze up to 2 months in airtight container. When ready to serve, just reheat in 200ºF oven about 30 minutes.
If you don’t have time to make your own dough, you can use refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or frozen, thawed puff pastry sheets instead; be sure to follow the package directions for oven temperature and bake time.
