Russian Rogaliki filled with jam, also known as Rugelach are soft and flaky cookies.



  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup jam or fruit preserves
  • 1 cup sugar powder


  1. In a mixing bowl sift 2 cups of flour and mix it with active dry yeast. Cut 2 sticks of cold butter in small pieces and add it to the flour. You can use a fork or your hands to mix butter with the flour and yeast until it is crumbly.
  2. In a separate bowl mix 1 cup of sour cream, sugar, 2 egg yolks and vanilla. Add it to the dry ingredients, and mix it again.
  3. Add the rest of the flour and knead the dough until it is smooth and doesn’t stick to your hands.
  4. Divide the dough into 6 even pieces and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate it for an hour.
  5. When the dough is ready, take one ball and roll it to about 2-3 mm thick. Using a pizza cutter cut it in 12 equal pieces.
  6. Put a little bit of jam on the outside edges of each piece and roll it in.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake Rogaliki for 15-20 min, until they have a beautiful gold color.
