Does anyone have from “The Old Country” a special passed down to the family baked goods recipe to share?

    My husband came from a family of Jewish bakers. At least 2 of his family’s recipes have been printed in the cookbooks that come from Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, NY. One is Regina’s Bobka in “Sundays at Moosewood,” and the other is Ruth’s Sour Cream Coffeecake in Moosewood Restaurant Book of Desserts.”

    Here’s my Great Aunt Thelma’s famous rugelach recipe:

    ½ lbs cottage cheese
    ½ lbs butter (softened)
    2 C of flour
    ½ C of sugar
    1 tbsp. ground cinammon
    1 C finely chopped walnuts
    ½ C of raisins
    apricot jam

    Preheat over to 375°F.
    Mix cheese and butter with fork.
    With fingers, add flour until blended. Split into five even portions (balls).
    Chill several hours or overnight.
    With rolling pin, roll each ball until very thin.
    Keep dough from sticking by sprinkling with flour while rolling.
    Roll into circles.
    Spread circles with jam.
    Sprinkle with walnuts, raisins and mixture of sugar/cinammon.
    Cut each circle into eights (like a pizza).
    Roll each wedge from wide end toward point.
    Place on ungreased cookie sheet with point down.
    Bake (375°) about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
