Today we made Chocolate Rugelach!
1C butter, 8 oz cream cheese, 2C flour, 3T sugar, 1/4t salt, 1t vanilla, 12 oz chocolate chips, melted; 1/2C walnuts, coarsely chopped
Stir together flour, sugar and salt.
Cut in butter and cream cheese.
The dough will get crumbly and then get sticky. Knead until just combined. Shape into a large rectangle. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 1 week.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Divide dough in half. Put the second half back in the fridge. Melt chocolate.
Roll out about 2T of the first half of the dough on a floured surface. Spread chocolate on top. Sprinkle on a few walnut pieces.
(Or– with a serrated knife, cut out a triangle 1″ X 2″ about 1/2″ high, and spread chocolate on top. Sprinkle on walnuts. Roll up.) Repeat with the rest of the dough. Place on greased cookie sheet.
Repeat with second half of dough. Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
