…And I still don’t really know what rugelach tastes like. But, first, WHERE ARE THE PICURES? They are being held hostage by my home computer, which has no internet connection at the moment. As best as I can gather, some kid friendly liquid ended up sloshing through the modem. Good times.
Back to the rugelach. The pictures will come, but I must warn you they are FRIGHTENING. Worthy of a haunted Halloween kitchen. I don’t know what happened to the dough. I followed the instructions EXACTLY. It was unrollable and unshapeable. It wouldn’t hold together. I forged ahead but with pitiable results. Too bad, too, as my filling was blackberry jam with chocolate. It was pretty tasty. I was particularly irritated because I was trying to make them for a Halloween party at my house. I subbed in Martha Stewart’s pumpkin-chocolate-chip squares at the last minute (fabulous!!). If anyone has any suggestions (without photos, I know it’s difficult) as to where I may have gotten off track with the dough, please let me know. I do want to try these again.

The modem is supposedly being replaced Tuesday, but I won’t be able to post the pictures or read anyone’s blog until Wednesday. I am working ALLLLLL day Tuesday at the polls. If you haven’t already (if you have I am jealous. Hey Missouri General Assembly, we need that new fangled early voting cuz waiting in line for hours is very conducive to high turnout.)…VOTE!
