Deconstructed Rugelach


It is pie season, what with all the peaches rolling around the kitchen and the bowls of blackberries everywhere. After I rolled out crusts for two pies I found I had enough pastry scraps to make one more bottom crust. I fit it into the bottom of a pie plate, then topped it with rugelach ingredients: raspberry jam, cinnamon and sugar, and chopped walnuts. Baked til it was lightly brown. Waste not!

My first experience with regelach was as a newly married woman living in Ohio, far away from my Deep South home. I love it rugelach, and always remember my first year of marriage when I eat it.

This looks so delicious! I recently discovered your blog and it's quickly become one of my favorites. You strike me as the epitome of the gracious and industrious homemaker -- I look forward to more of your inspiring posts!

That looks like a very fine and perfectly scrumptious way to use up the leftover pastry.

I've just learned something new too. I've never heard of rugelach before.

Thankyou for your beautiful blog. I enjoy reading it very much, and always feel inspired after doing so. :) Giles' photos are just lovely - he is a talent! Thanks for sharing your ideas and wisdom and lovely family with us.
PS. There is an award waiting for you at my blog. :)

My husband's mother used to sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the leftover pie crust pieces and bake them. She then let the children eat them. I'm sure she must have been trying to keep them out of the pie until dessert time!

Hi Anna,
I enjoy your blog, mostly from afar. I ran across this essay by Henry Ward Beecher, on his family's first experience with a sewing machine, and, being the seamstress that you are, I thought you would enjoy it. :o)
