Chocolate Chip Rugelach

(1 Votes)
Coming In:
about 5 dozen rugelach
15 Min

Melt-in-your-mouth homemade Chocolate Chip Rugelach get their extra richness from a creamy special ingredient. Our homemade rugelach pastries may look and taste bakery fancy, but they're super simple to make!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound (4 sticks) butter, softened but not melted
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, cut butter into flour. Add ice cream and work it into mixture with your hands. (Add more flour, if necessary, to make dough easier to handle.) Cover and refrigerate dough overnight. (It will become hard.)
  2. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, nuts, and cinnamon. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup mixture onto a clean, smooth surface. Separate dough into 5 equal pieces. Place one piece of dough on the sugar-nut mixture and refrigerate remaining pieces of dough until ready to use. Roll out dough with a lightly floured rolling pin to form a circle 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup chocolate chips over the rolled dough,then cut dough into 12 to 14 small wedges. Starting at wide end, roll up dough and place seam-side down on baking sheet.
  4. Repeat entire process, placing more sugar-nut mixture on the smooth surface each time before rolling out dough. 
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until bottoms turn golden.

A picture would be nice. Especially for something like this that is not very common. I'd like to see what the outcome will be! Thanks :)

you don't have cinnamon anyplace in this recipe as an ingredient so am going to add a tablespoon..does everyone agree or have a different amount they use?? thanks :)

Hi joana39 2491207, Thank you for catching that! We updated the recipe ingredients, the correct amount of cinnamon is 1/4 cup. Thank you again and enjoy!

These sound very yummy, especially the combination of chocolate and cinnamon. I had to stop and think for a minute how to roll these out... I understand now. In my mind, I went through it step-by-step. It's like making crescent-shaped cookies, except you don't turn the edges in to form a crescent. Thank you... we love rugelach and I will try definitely try these.
