Rugelach is a flakey cookie or pastry that is a scrumptious dessert for any time of year, but they’re a must-have during Hanukkah. This version is a traditional pastry with a healthy Chia Raspberry Jam filling to boost your omega-3’s and get a protein hit during the celebration period! I’ve also created a delish Gluten-Free Rugelach, so anyone can enjoy this traditional dish.

Ingredients

Method


Dough:
3.8oz unsalted butter, room temperature
½ cup plain Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt
2 ½ tbsp coconut sugar
2 cups whole meal spelt flour


Filling: Chia Raspberry Jam
2 cups (11oz) frozen raspberries (or berries of choice)
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp maple syrup or raw honey (optional)
2 tbsp filtered water
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 vanilla pod, insides scraped out or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1. Place butter and yogurt into a food processor and process until well combined.
2. Add coconut sugar and flour and process until a dough is formed.
3. Roll dough into 4 equally sized balls and refrigerate them in an airtight container for 2 hours.
4. For the filling, combine all ingredients in a small saucepan, place over medium heat and bring to the boil.
5. Turn heat down and simmer for around 10 mins, stirring through occasionally. Allow to cool.
6. Preheat oven to 320°F and line a baking tray with baking paper.
7. On a well-floured surface, roll each ball into a circle about 0.1" thick. Spread the dough with a thin layer of jam. Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the circle into 8 triangles.
8. Starting with the wide edge, roll each triangle up, and place the Rugelach, pointy edge tucked under, on the prepared baking tray.
9. Bake for 30 mins or until golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack before serving.

Tip:
Serve immediately, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 4 months. If you're gluten-free, try Wholesome Child's Gluten-Free Rugelach.
