Rugelach is a traditional Hanukah cookie. If you have ever attempted to make these cookies before, you know it is a rather tedious task. This is a very quick recipe. I will admit that they are missing the cream cheese dough and you can taste the difference. However, this is a very delicious cookie if you are not comparing the two. Enjoy!
Store bought pie dough
Cut the dough into 16 wedges (similar to a pizza). Starting at the tip of the dough, spread the jam over the top two-thirds of each wedge, top with the pecans. Roll each wedge beginning at the fat end to form a crescent shape. Brush the beaten egg on top of the cookies and sprinkle with sugar. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Bake the cookies at 325 degrees for 35 minutes.
