Are you team Rugalach?
If you’re not sure yet, trust me, you will be!
If I’m being honest with you, I’ve sat here the last 2 hours You-Tubing videos on how to work Lightroom, a program that helps edit photos.
Fact, I’m more confused than ever and just realized I’ve now wasted 3 of my 5 hours total of nanny care this month on this DIY educational experience.
Lesson learned, You-Tube does not solve all yours problems.
Anyways, back to the Rugalach. After spending way to much time on the above, I knew I needed a simple treat to help reward my efforts.
Enter, these Chocolate Walnut Rugalach Cookies!
Yep, that’s a whole lot of cookies for Miss Hayden and I to enjoy!
To cut to the chase since now I’m tight on time (thanks again You-Tube), you need to make these Chocolate Walnut Rugalach Cookies for 3 reasons:
3 Reasons to Make Chocolate Walnut Rugalach Cookies:
- First, they are damn delicious.
- Second, they take less than 20 minutes total to prepare and have a minimal mess clean up (winning!)
- Third, they are damn delicious. (I say that twice because it’s a fact, Mr. CEO ate 5!)
Okay, now trust me when I say, if you need back the gift of time this season, these cookies are for you!
Chocolate Walnut Rugalach Cookies
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 each whole grain pie crust raw, prepared from scratch or store bought
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/3 cup walnuts chopped
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips mini
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
- Sprinkle flour on a flat surface (preferably a marble or granite area). Roll out pie crust so its a flat, large circle.
- Starting from the outer edges in, sprinkle brown sugar, walnuts and chocolate chips. Using the back side of a fork, press the sugar, walnuts and chocolate chips into the pie crust.
- Take a pizza cutter (or sharp knife) and cut the circle in half, then into fourths, repeating until you have 16 “slices”.
- Start at the outer edge of one slice and tightly roll the dough in towards the center, gently pressing the tip of the last piece of dough onto the cookie so the sugar, walnut and chocolate mixture stays nestled inside.
- Repeat above step for all remaining 15 cookies to be assembled. Place on the baking sheet and cook for 12 minutes.
- Remove and let cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, enjoy!
