    manushag's Note:

    I have tried many different recipes and this one is the best. More like a mini pie than a cookie. Also love to make many different fillings. A good opportunity to use the many jams I make all summer. Blueberry, strawberry, peach, apricot, raspberry or my famous 'Mystery Jam', a combo of all leftover fruits which I freeze and make at the end of the summer. I also use different nuts such as walnut, pecan, almond or macadamia and substitute dried cranberries or currants for the raisins. You can also add 1/4 cup sugar to the dough, but I think the fillings are sweet enough without. For chocolate rugalach, make a ganache by melting 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips and a tablespoon of cream. Stir well and spread on dough circle before (or instead of)the jam. I also drizzle melted chocolate on top, after baked and cooled.
