This is a recipe I have in a book called the "King Arthur Cookie Companion". Originally it was a "Cherry Nut Rugelach", but I wanted to stick with what felt more like home with me, so I went ahead and tweaked it. You can use walnuts or almonds, just make sure that you TOAST THEM before chopping them up! I'm not Jewish, nor is my family, but we love this all the same. We like to call this our "Adopted Jewish Recipe". People are nearly brought to tears when eating this beautiful, amazing cookie. Be sure to have some helpers, because the yield to this is astronomical!! This will make 64 cookies. Yes, 64!!
