Rugelach are awesome flaky cookies to have around at any time of the year, but they're a must-have at Hanukkah to round out other fried and chocolate-y dessert options.
These crescent-shaped cookies are made by rolling a triangle of dough around a sweet filling such as chocolate, fruit, or nuts. Our suggestion? Make one dough and a few fillings—it's a simple and fun way to make an assorted cookie plate.
