Rugelach with dry fruit filling.

Colder months call for cozy, comfy and warm food. To me, warm and cozy baking means baking with yeasted sweet dough. I notice I bake more buns, pies, and other awesome treats that are made with yeasted dough during colder months. The warmth of the dough, its softness, the aroma of freshly baked treats, it’s all so enjoyable!
If you are a fan of this type of dough and if dry fruits are something that you love, then today’s recipe is just perfect for you.


In collaboration with www.TasteUSA.ca I have made these wonderful, soft Rugelach filled with a very tasty filling made out of U.S. prunes, Medjool dates and almonds. This filling compliments the soft, tasty dough and is just a perfect match. Did you know that we don’t grow these items locally? We import prunes, dates and almonds from neighbouring farms in the USA.
If you are looking to bake something new, something incredibly delicious, satisfying and cozy, like my Rugelach with dry fruits filling, then follow the link to my recipe below.

Today I’m sharing a “must have” recipe for the “universal” yeasted dough. Universal means that It’s great for any type of baking project, whether it is sweet or savory . This dough rests and proofs in the fridge. It can be used within a week if kept tightly wrapped in the fridge so It’s perfect for those days when you don’t have a lot of time to bake.
You can even make extra dough and freeze it for later! This dough freezes well and can be kept in the freezer for up to 2 months.
This universal dough is elastic and smooth. It’s very pleasant to work with! It’s ideal!
For this recipe I am using half of the regular dough portion. If you are baking for a big family use it all or even double the recipe.


I’m using wonderful, delicious U.S. grown prunes, dates and almonds to make the filling for my Rugelach. This filling is delicious and satisfying and it pairs perfectly with the dough. You will simply want more, so let’s bake!
