Thus, prepare yourselves for a week of cabbage soup diet recipes starting Monday (or the next day…).
I used to work as a babysitter for a Hasidic family when I was a teenager. I loved those kids and I also loved the sweet treats the mother plated up for me when I was looking after the kids on
a Shabbos.
I particularly loved her rugelach. I wasn’t enough of a cook back then to ask her for the recipe. But I found one on a kosher food website that comes really close to hers: Israeli chocolate rugelach.
When you have mixed the butter and cream, add 1/4 cup sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix it until you get a soft dough.

Put it in the fridge for at least an hour.
For the chocolate filling mix 1 tablespoon of cocoa and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Add 1/4 cup of dark grated chocolate.

Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll each into a circle on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin.

Spread melted butter on the dough and add 1/4 of the sugar cocoa mix on top. Cut into 12 slices.

Roll the slices up backwards, i.e. start with the wide end.

Put them on a tray, brush with egg wash and sprinkle them with sugar.

Bake them in the oven (preheated) at 200 degrees Celsius for 20-25 minutes.
