Posted on Leave a comment

-½ Teaspoon salt

-1¾ Cup all-purpose flour

-¾ Cup butter (unsalted, cold)

-½ Cup sour cream

-1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

-Strawberry  jam

-¾ Cup almonds or pecans, chopped

-Powdered Sugar

Cut cold butter into tabs first, and In an electric mixer, mix together cold butter, sour cream and vanilla until smooth. There may be a few lumps. 

Next add flour and salt. Mix until a ball of dough forms. Gently knead and split into three balls of dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 25 minutes. Take out one ball of dough at a time when rolling. Keep other two in the fridge  until ready to use.

On a floured surface, roll out one ball of dough into a large circle. Spread strawberry jam and sprinkle chopped nuts on top. Drizzle with a bit of honey. 

Then cut dough into 12 triangles (pizza style) and roll into a crescent shape starting from the wide side down to the corner. 

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until golden in color. Once they are totally cooled, roll in a small bowl of powdered sugar. Enjoy!

This delicious cookie is inspired by the Hallmark Channel movie “Made For Each Other”. Main character Rachel (Alexandra Turshen) molds “the perfect man” out of clay and wished him to life! One way to her heart was through her stomach with her favorite treat, rugelach!
