Wednesday Word: Rugelach

Rugelach - noun.

Now and then you come across a new word out of the blue! While ordering groceries online, I noticed that rugelach, pronounced rug-a-lah, for sale in the pastry section and ordered some out of curiosity. Turns out it was a delicious choice.

According to Wikipedia, the treat originated among Polish Jews. There are many recipes online if you care to try your hand at it. The dough is made from sour cream or cream cheese and common fillings include raisins, nuts, fruit preserves, chocolate and walnuts.
