DIRECTIONS

  • To make the Dough: Beat butter and cream cheese in a large bowl. Add sugar and beat till fluffy. Mix in flour and salt. Gather dough into ball, gently knead until smooth and flour is incorporated.
  • Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Flatten into discs and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. To make the Filling: Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Unwrap a disc of dough and roll into an 8" x 8" square on a lightly floured surface. Spread 1/8 of the filling (about 1/4 cup) onto center of dough with back of a spoon., leaving about 1/2-inch border on top and bottom.
  • Starting at top, carefully roll squares into a tight roll. Using a sharp knife slice roll into 3/4-inch slices, discarding the ends.
  • Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet and repeat with remaining discs of dough. Brush each cookie with beaten egg. Sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake in preheated oven about 20 minutes or until rugelach is golden. Cool on wire racks.
  • NOTE: The cherries and walnuts are both easily chopped, speparately, in the food processor.
