|Mom and Dad, before Dad's passing.|
You see, I'm polish and as I spent the morning making this little treat I thought about my ancestors - especially my Grandmother, Josephine Solinski Brodowski. I called her Nana. She spent many years working in a bakery and I'm sure Rugelach was one of the treats she made.
I could also feel the presence of my dad, Richard Brodowski - I think he is smiling down on me today :)
My own results were delicious - and they came out looking just like the picture in the cookbook! Happy day.
For the Rugelach, I used the date levkar, white chocolate chips and blanched toasted almonds. The combination was heaven. Pure heaven.
Our hosts for today are Jessica of My Baking Heart and Margaret of The Urban Hiker. You can also check out results from our group at TWD: Baking with Julia.
What a fun adventure this is turning out to be.
