Rugelach, those little swirls of dough packed with gooey cinnamon, chocolate, and nuts, symbolize the sweet new year during the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. Even if you're not observing the holiday next week, you can still enjoy this traditional dessert at home. The crescent-shaped goodies are relatively simple to make and can be customized with different combinations of dried fruit, nuts, and chocolate to suit your palate. Serious Eats rounds up six of the best rugelach recipes to recreate in your home kitchen.

i baked the rugelach you're using to illustrate this article! And, yes, they're delicious.

They're even easier to make if you roll them up like a jellyroll and slice them!

BTW. I never saw an "e" in Rugulach, but no matter how you spell it, they're SO good.
