About this recipe: Tired of the same old sugary sweets? Try this twisty 'pastry'! It's a naturally sweet "rugelach"- a delectable sweet filled with raisins, nuts and cinnamon.

Serves: 32 

  • 225g butter
  • 225g cream cheese, softened
  • 350g plain flour

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Cream together the butter and cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer. Blend in the vanilla. Mix in the flour. Chill the dough.
  2. To make the filling: Mix together the chopped raisins, chopped walnuts and cinnamon. (If you have a food processor, place the whole walnuts and raisins into the bowl, sprinkle with the cinnamon and chop them together by processing in short pulses.)
  3. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Roll out each portion into a 25 to 30cm circle just under .25cm thick on a lightly floured board or between two sheets of greaseproof paper.
  4. Spread a light layer of apricot preserves (approximately 2 tablespoons) onto each dough circle. Sprinkle each circle with approximately 4 tablespoons of the chopped nut mixture.
  5. Cut each circle into 16 wedges using a pastry cutter or a pizza cutter. Roll each wedge from base to point. Place point down on a lightly greased or baking parchment lined baking tray.
  6. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes at 190 C until golden. Remove to racks to cool.
