Nutella Rugelach

Nutella Rugelach

Yield: 24 cookies

1 9-inch pie dough (store bought or homemade)
1/2 cup Nutella
1 tablespoon butter, melted
coarse sugar


Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.

Roll out pie crust into a 9 inch circle (or if it's store bought...open the package and unroll the pie crust) and slice into 12 triangles each one(like you would a pizza).

Spread each triangle with a healthy amount of Nutella. Roll into a crescent, starting with the wide end. Continue till all triangles are filled with Nutella. Transfer crescents to baking sheet, leaving about an inch for possible spreading.

Brush the top of each Nutella crescent with the melted butter and sprinkle generously with coarse sugar. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until they are lightly golden brown.

Remove from oven and serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Heavenly Buttermilk Pancakes

I found this easy recipe on a site with THE interesting note: "This recipe was entered in the contest for Your Best Holiday Breakfast." So, I decided to try. Previously I learned about another definitely delicious recipe, which I make all the time. Of course, many of you will ask me a question which recipe is better.  I think, my old recipe with oatmeal is much better. Probably, no one entered my old recipe in the contest, because my recipe would be a winner.

Heavenly Buttermilk Pancakes

Makes 20-25 medium size pancakes

1 cup flour
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
dash of salt

Sift the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter.
Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just incorporated.
Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium heat and lightly coat with butter or nonstick spray. Ladle the batter into the heated pan and cook until the top bubbles and the bottom is browned.
Flip and cook until the other side is nicely browned. Serve as you like them. We like ours with powdered sugar, homemade jam and some sprinkled cinnamon.
