Quinoa PB&J Cookies

So how's everyone feeling after the Superbowl?  I'm not a big fan, although I do enjoy any day that makes it okay to eat large amounts of delicious (i.e. bad for you) food.  Also, I'm bummed cause (spoiler alert!) I didn't win the Superbowl pool I was in.  Sigh.  There's always next year.  Oh, and that halftime performance?  Incredible!...more

Rogaliki (Rugelach)

Oh, how many cookies did I eat today? A lot! And I was promising myself to stay in shape this year…. But these Rogaliki were sooo delicious! So soft and flaky…with apple and cherry jam…. Sounds good, right? I know! So I couldn’t help myself but to sneak a cookie or two every time I went to the kitchen today. Though after eating a healthy dinner of fish and salad I feel a little bit less guilty. It all comes out even, right?So I was baking Rogaliki for two days in a row trying to come up with the best recipe. I read so many different ones but came up with my own recipe. Some recipes advised refrigerating the dough for an hour before baking, while others said to refrigerate overnight. Of course, I had to try both ways to see which one was the winner. So I used my own recipe, but baked one half an hour after refrigerating it, the other half I left for the following day.I have to tell you that the first batch won! It baked more evenly when the dough was refrigerated for 1 hour. If you leave it overnight, the cookies come out a little bit overcooked outside and under-cooked inside.Also, don’t put too much jam inside, it will leak out and burn (you really don’t want your cookies taste like burned jam!)....more
