Rugelach isn't a rolled out cookie. It's a rolled up cookie...
I'll agree with Smaug, Linzers are snarf!
Otherwise, I have to say Alice Medrich"s lemon cookies. I found this recipe in a chocolate cookbook and they are just THE BEST flavored lemon cookies EVER.

Seems to me that Rugelach are only classed as cookies because of size- they really should be considered a pastry.

You have to roll out the dough before you can roll up the cookie! So Rugulach are roll-out cookies. Every recipe I've ever seen for Rugulach has been in a cookie book. Why isn't it a cookie? I guess you can call it whatever you want? In our family, they're cookies.

OK by me- the language, for better or worse, is as much yours as mine. At any rate they would, by any other name, smell as sweet.

Gingerbread people. Because it was my great-aunt's recipe and we always made them for Halloween working together to decorate them. They are the only roll out cookies I make regularly.

Linzer cookies because.. well, why would a cookie be a favorite? Because I like them. Though if we're allowing rugelach, we may have another tie. Then I have to decide what kind of Rugelach...

Barefoot Contessa’s shortbread cookies. Easy, buttery, plain or chocolate dipped delicious!
