Think you're too busy to make rugelach from scratch? Save yourself time and make rugelach the log-roll way. Simply roll out strips of dough, fill it, roll it up like a rug, then slice it into 1-inch, bite-sized pieces. This technique is also the way to go if you choose to make and freeze your rugelach dough ahead of time. Get the recipe!

The key to this rugelach from renowned bakery Sarabeth's is a buttery dough made even richer with the addition of cream cheese. The cream cheese makes the dough pliable, elastic, and very forgiving—all wonderful qualities for a rolled dough. Once the dough is rolled into a round, it's spread with a thin layer of preserves, either raspberry or apricot, and sprinkled with a mix of ground walnuts, cinnamon, brown sugar, and cocoa powder.
